UN Hosts Regional Conference Against Religious Violence in Cyprus

The Office of UNCHR hosts this week a two day regional conference bringing together religious leaders, lawmakers and human rights defenders from the broader Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region aiming to strengthen and promote cooperation in cross-boundary communication to prevent religious violence.
Entitled ‘Broadening Cross-Boundary Communications’ the conference will take place in Ledra Palace, at the Nicosia buffer zone, on Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 October with the participation of UN Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief Heiner Bielefeldt, an UNFICYP press release says.
“Communication helps to overcome prejudices, prevent negative stereotypes and build – or re-build – trust in societies,” Bielefeldt said, announcing the conference.
