The Middle East and North Africa region is a hotbed of human rights violations and is one of the worst areas in the world when it comes to the right to religious freedom and the persecution of minority religious groups. It is right and important that much time is given to highlighting the crimes of perpetrators and challenging the lack of comprehensive responses to the crimes. However, it is also important to acknowledge places where there are signs of improvement to the religious freedom landscape and to identify opportunities to support and consolidate such developments for the common good of those communities and nations.
On the fringe of the UK-hosted Ministerial Conference on Freedom of Religion or Belief (July 5-6), The Religious Freedom Institute in collaboration with Refcemi is hosting an event, focusing on countries such as Egypt, Iraq, and Tunisia. This will be a platform for experts to promote concrete solutions for the consolidation and advancement of religious freedom for all.
