Submission to the UN: Fostering a Culture of Tolerance and Diversity

On 16 April 2024, the World Evangelical Alliance made a submission to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in response to the High Commissioner’s call for input on combating intolerance against persons based on religion or belief. In our submission, we give examples of evangelicals engaging in inter-faith dialogue around the world, with an intention of fostering a culture of tolerance, diversity and peace.

Among the recommendations, the submission encourages all States to foster and facilitate inter-faith dialogue, to refrain from inciting hatred and violence against minority groups on the basis of religion or belief, and for the High Commissioner to condemn blasphemy laws while urging States to repeal them.
