A meeting on religion and migration

A meeting on religion and migration
On January 27-30, around 70 people from 15 European countries will gather for a meeting in Malmö on one of the major contemporary and future issues of our time, migration.

The meeting aims to create an interreligious European network to promote peaceful coexistence and social sustainability.

The participants are especially invited, hand-picked people who represent different aspects of the migration issue - young people, people with their own experience of refugees, researchers, religious leaders, politicians, practitioners, media and others.

The theme of the meeting is ”Att bevara vår mänsklighet – för vi har alla varit främlingar” : Keeping our humanity - for we were strangers once.

- This meeting brings together a cross-section of European societies in one place for three days.

It gives us unique opportunities to work with the challenges and opportunities that migration poses, says Archbishop Antje Jackelén.

The breadth of participants is necessary for the conversation method, Future Search, chosen for the meeting.

The method deals with a specific question and is entirely based on interactivity. The participants are guided through a process in several stages and have plenty of space to think together in different constellations, where many voices are allowed to speak.

- I am convinced that dialogue and practical cooperation between religions is a key to peaceful coexistence and social sustainability in Europe, says the archbishop.

The program begins with a memorial ceremony on Monday afternoon, on the occasion of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Tuesday-Thursday is dedicated to the conversation process, which is open only to invited participants.

The meeting is part of the program Interreligious Practice for Peace - A World of Neighbors
