31 January 2023, Geneva, Switzerland- The Annual Geneva Interfaith Dialogue convenes a diverse panel of Ambassadors and other high-level representatives of the world’s major faiths, as well as the International Geneva community at large, to engage on the links between faith, politics, and society. The Dialogue is held on the premises of the United Nations Office in Geneva (UNOG) each year during World Interfaith Harmony Week. It serves as a platform not simply to commemorate UNGA Resolution 65/5, but as a vehicle to raise public awareness, renew the Resolution’s commitments, and build capacity for putting the Resolution’s values into practice across the world.
The event will take place on Friday 10 February 2023 from 14:30 to 17:00 (Geneva Time), at the Palais des Nations Building E, Room XXII. Speakers and UN Staff members will join in-person, with a public broadcast provided via Webex. Attendees who are not UN Staff members will watch the proceedings online(via Webex) and have the opportunity to send their written questions at the end of the event.
This year’s session consists of two-panel discussions: Faith, Multilateralism, and Public Policy”. Each session will have five speakers, in which each speaker shall relay their own opinion on their or respective topic. Following this, each speaker shall explain in what ways their government or organization leverages either the synergies between faith and multilateralism or faith and public policy, depending on their respective topic. We kindly ask the speakers to respect the time limit of ten minutes allotted to them.
