Andreas Kiefer: “For sustainable peace, we need people to learn to live together with their differences”
“Peace – and an inclusive society - cannot be obtained through security measures which can only achieve public order”, stated Congress Secretary General Andreas Kiefer at the 27th Conference of the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs on “The role of leaders and decision makers in spreading the culture of peace and confronting terrorism”, in Cairo, on 11 March 2017.
“For sustainable peace, we need people to learn to live together with their differences and to achieve this we need local leaders who are both aware of the issue and ready to work with the citizens in order to make it a reality”, he added. Participants in the Conference adopted the 'Cairo Document for Spreading Peace' which recommends using all available awareness-raising means to disseminate the culture of tolerance and stand up to extremism. Many of its recommendations are fully in line with the Congress guidelines against radicalisation and its toolkit for interreligious dialogue. “As several Council of Europe member States are represented in this conference we will discuss how to associate the high level forum with our third summit of mayors against radicalisation in November 2017 in Barcelona,” concluded Andreas Kiefer.
