World Tolerance Summit to host 31 speakers




Dubai: The first World Tolerance Summit (WTS 2018) will be held in Dubai from Nov.15-16, which will coincide with the International Day for Tolerance. Organised by the International Institute for Tolerance, the summit will bring together more than 1,500 government leaders and peace building ambassadors.

Themed “Prospering From Pluralism: Embracing Diversity through Innovation and Collaboration”, the two-day summit will be chaired by Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Tolerance and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the International Institute for Tolerance.

The event will have a series of interactive dialogue sessions, workshops, an accompanying exhibition, panel discussions, and a library for tolerance comprising a collection of important references, books and researches dealing with tolerance in its holistic sense

Dr Hamad Al Shaikh Ahmad Al Shaibani, Chairman of the Summit’s Higher Committee, said that the event will include six panel discussions involving 31 speakers who will delve into a range of important and sensitive issues.

He expressed hope that the summit would help policymakers formulate strategies capable of creating a society free from violence and conflict, a society in which the values of respect and justice prevail.

Khalifa Mohammed Al Suwaidi, General Coordinator of the summit, said, “There will be a series of sessions that are rich in their topics and workshops presented by an elite group of official, academic and influential figures. The event, covering scientific and social aspects, features interactive sessions, and workshops targeting youth.”

Among the key speakers are Minister of State for Happiness and Wellbeing Ohood Bint Khalfan Al Roumi, FNC Speaker D. Amal Al Qubaisi, Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council Dr Abdul Latif Rashid Al Zayani, former Secretary General of Arab League Amr Moussa, Egypt’s Assistant Foreign Minister Dr Ahmed Ihab Gamaleldin, and Special Adviser to the UN Secretary General Adama Dieng.

Dawood Al Shezawi, head of the Organising Committee, said that the two-day event will discuss mechanisms on how to counter hate speech and extremism, and ensure the primacy of the language of dialogue and tolerance over that of intolerance and exclusion.

He expressed hope that the summit would yield positive results, and participants seek to make recommendations that help promote a culture of dialogue among peoples.
