Center for Global Peacebuilding Holds Groundbreaking Muslim Conference

Oct. 12-13, 2012

The Center’s first international conference, Muslim Perspectives on Peacebuilding, brings together extraordinary Muslim scholars and practitioners and scholars from diverse faith traditions and ethical approaches. Participants from all over the world will gather to present and exchange peacebuilding proposals. Sessions will provide interactive training on topics including reducing domestic violence, engaging across generations, handling interfaith conflicts when building masjids, using the arts in dialogue, developing peace studies programs, and the spiritual dimensions of peacebuilding.

You can read more about the conference here.

Imam Salim will be part of a panel discussion on Saturday afternoon called Spiritual Dimensions of Peacebuilding. You can download the entire program, with speakers bios as a PDF file.

The conference is free but you must register. If you are planning on going register early as space is limited.

I hope many of you will come, it will be nice to meet some of those who have supported Imam Salim’s work in the past.
