Bridges of tolerance and intercultural communication from locality to globality

18-19 November 2019


The United Arab Emirates pursues building bridges of tolerance between the components of its local community, and participates in international forums to promote peace and openness to various cultures till it has distinctly become a global capital for civilization connection, religious dialogue, and human exchange of various experiences, returns, and innovations. This has been based on a wise legislative approach, and organizing administration and a vigorous implementation sequence that consolidates the values ​​of tolerance. Such values have been followed by waves of violence in various countries to eradicate tolerance from the hearts. A few enemies of humanity have gone too far in polluting the minds with ideas of estrangement and civilization clashes, and agitating their souls to the speech of hostility and hatred at the family, local, regional and international levels. Human conscience has nearly dried up from acceptance of the other, and from contentment with difference and diversity. There have been a number of authentic voices that preserve the culture of the ancestors and uphold their pledge to care for the sanctity of every human being, regardless of color, race, religion and sect, and to extend bridges of intellectual and cultural communication; they preached taking care of rights, fulfilling covenants, ensuring safety of self , property and honor, and striving to make the other happy because the other has a blood link in humanity, brotherhood in monotheism in particular, or in humanity in general. The other is a counterpart in creation that has the full capacity to enjoy full rights

To this end, and within the tremendous efforts made by the UAE to spread the values ​​of moderation, coexistence and peace, Mohamed Bin Zayed University for Humanities decided to invite scholars, writers, thinkers, and research professors to hold an international scientific conference to discuss the topic: bridges of tolerance and civilizational communication from locality to globality, based on the following themes:
