The contribution of churches and religious communities to the sustainable peace-building in Southeast Europe

On the occasion of the European Year of intercultural dialogue, the CIVIS Association organized in the premises of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg an international conference entitled “The contribution of churches and religious communities to the sustainable peace-building in Southeast Europe”.

Representatives of churches and religious communities had the opportunity to share their views with European experts and suggest how churches and religious communities can contribute to building confidence and reconciliation between nations and ethnic groups in the region in order to preserve the fragile peace.

The conference was attended by representatives of all religious communities and churches of Southeast Europe, the ambassadors of the permanent delegations of Southeast Europe, prominent theologians and religious theorists. A bilingual publication containing the transcripts of the speeches was issued and presented in Strasbourg, Zagreb and Belgrade.
