8TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON YOUTH AND INTERFAITH DIALOGUE
The Theme of 8th Conference on Youth and Interfaith Dialogue is "The Role of Religions to Promote Peace, Security and Transcend Violent Extremism”. The conference will make a critical appraisal of the role of religion in security issues and suggest practical ways religions can help in resolving security problems as well create and promote an inclusive, compassionate community dialogue process that honours different personal experiences, perspectives, and narratives, while allowing for better expressing and listening to each other as we work together toward understanding and harmony.
Conference participants will include Community leaders and activists, NGO representatives, Political leaders, Religious/Spiritual leaders, Peace activists, Government representatives, Students, Cultural/Ethnic and Spiritual Community representatives, Human Service providers, Academics, Social Science researchers, Key participants from current or recent regions of turmoil in Nigeria, Visionaries and front-line thinkers in social-political principles, psycho-social-spiritual dynamics, and human consciousness and members of the interested public from Nigeria and around the world.
Specifically, the 8th International Interfaith Youth Conference seeks to:
Examine dimensions and dynamics of "The OTHER" on individual and group levels, and consider how enemy identity is formed, perpetuated, and manipulated.
Identify and compile fundamental questions, dilemmas, and implications for further deep inquiry and examination in an expanding public dialogue, and to challenge embedded negative belief systems that promote adversarial perceptions of the "The Other."
