Attalaki participates in a side event, on the fringe of the UK-hosted Ministerial Conference on Freedom of Religion or Belief

Attalaki participates in the work of the international Ministerial Conference on Freedom of Religion or Belief By the invitation of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. Our colleague Ghassan Ayari will be our delegate at this event. On the other hand, we are honored to participate in an important side event, in which Mr. Ayari is a keynote speaker, following an invited by the Institute of Religious Freedom and Refcemi, on the sidelines of the UK Ministerial Conference to Advance Religious Freedom on the 7th of July. This event is titled: Building on Positive Developments in the Middle East and North Africa: Acknowledging Progress on Freedom of Religion or Belief and Identifying Further Steps and Opportunities.


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.
