Perspectives on the Role of Religion in Diplomacy, Beirut

March 19, 2017

Dr. Iravani attended a round table workshop, Perspectives on the Role of Religion in Diplomacy, Foreign Policy and International Affairs, on the 17-19 November 2017. This workshop was hosted by SwedAlex, the Swedish Institute Alexandria in collaboration with Forward Thinking. 

The meeting brought together high-level parliamentarians and political leaders, government officials and experts in the field from diverse perspectives from Europe, the Gulf, Middle East and North Africa (Gulf-MENA).  

This workshop aimed to build on a report that was produced in March 2017 by the Helsinki Policy Forum and to which Dr. Iravani contributed, “Discussion Papers: Religious Literacy, Foreign Policy & Diplomacy” –  a copy of which that can be accessed on this website:

It was an opportunity to facilitate a discussion around religious literacy and diplomacy; to explore perspectives on the accommodation of religious and non-religious worldviews in society; and aims to raise awareness and increase understanding of these issues in order to inform policy-making.
