Workshop of Adyan Foundation for the development of the "Charter on Religious Diversity and Inclusive Citizenship Education" (05/02/2013)

The Secretary General participated in the workshop organized by Adyan foundation for the development of the Charter on Religious Diversity and Inclusive Citizenship Education. In her speech at the opening session, she mentioned that the concept of citizenship as it appeared in the West with the French Revolution disregards the religious dimension of identity according to a secular vision of the state based on the separation between religion and state, noting that the inclusive citizenship of religious diversity is a new concept that would meet the requirements of eastern societies that include diverse religious communities and where religion is an essential component of identity.
