FAITH AND FREEDOM SUMMIT 2019

Civil Society
Date: Tuesday, 02 April 2019

Venue: European Parliament - Spinelli Building - room: Room A1H1

Join us for the Faith and Freedom Summit II, Practicing what we Preach in Europe, that will take place on April 2 at the European Parliament in Brussels!

The roundtable will bring together Members of the European Parliament, the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (OSCE), the European Commission, as well as several human rights activists and scholars from civil society. The roundtable aims top drive an open discussion on the topic and the need to reinforce the existing mechanisms protecting freedom of religion or belief in the European Union. 

The Faith and Freedom Summit II and Roundtable is not an organization. It iss a campaign driven by a large coalition of faith-based and non faith-based NGOs and supported by many EU stakeholders. The Summit launched a pledge that all MEP candidates are asked to sign, that reads as following: "I pledge that I will uphold and defend the freedom of conscience and religion of all individuals by rejecting and speaking out against bigotry, discrimination, harassment and violence; and so build a more equitable society for all."  The  pledge is inter alia supported by Mr Ahmed Shaheed, the UN Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Religion or Belief.

We strongly believe that EU citizens must enjoy a real freedom of religion or belief, at every level, and that this fundamental right is not given the importance it deserves in the EU institutions, and in the EU instruments to protect the various freedoms of EU citizens.
