A strong call for deepening dialogue with action was made following an important global conference to coincide with the United Nation’s International Day for Tolerance on 16th November 2022.
The Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs (MARA) in the Sultanate of Oman in cooperation with the member of the German network, Baraza, committed themselves to advancing their partnership for peace. The events which were titled “Deepening Dialogue”, ran from 14th - 16th November 2022 in Muscat, Oman.
The context of the symposium was Oman’s flagship exhibition ‘Tolerance, Understanding, Coexistence - Oman’s Message of Islam’ which toured the world for a decade from April 2010. The discussions which took place this time involved the construction of ideas and schemes to advance to the next stage in an increasingly polarised world. Through its network, Baraza gathered 15 global experts who generated a series of educational, cultural and community project proposals to consider.
The Minister of MARA – His Excellency Dr. Mohammed Al Mamari who opened the meeting, declared his support for work to advance to the next level.
Georg Popp, President of Baraza said, “The conference provided us with a set of creative and realistic concepts to advance peace in Oman and beyond 2023. Baraza’s partnership with MARA is long-standing and the conference was further proof that we are mutually ready to progress our relationship.
