The Global Council for Tolerance and Peace Publishes its first book entitled ”Paths to a culture of Tolerance and Peace”
A new achievement in the fields of Tolerance and Peace has been recorded today for the Global Council for Tolerance and Peace, the Publication of its first book “ Paths to Culture of Tolerance and Peace”.
The President of the Global Council for Tolerance and Peace, H.E. Ahmed AlJarwan, declared on this occasion that this book, which is written by the world’s foremost thinkers in this area, aims to increase feelings of openness and respect toward others, solidarity and sharing based on a sense of security in one’s own identity and a capacity to recognize the many dimensions of being human in different cultural and social contexts.
He also mentioned that “We are living today in a multicultural world, surrounded by people from different backgrounds, cultures and religions. Establishing tolerance and peace has become crucial. Without these qualities, social stability and communal harmony are threatened; and acceptance of each other remains elusive. Spreading a culture of tolerance and peace is necessary to address contemporary issues of world peace, this includes reflection on the importance of refusing violence and adopting a more peaceful means for resolving disagreements and conflicts. ”
The book is currently available online as open access book targeting politicians, academicians, researchers and students, and will be available in hard copies too.
H.E. AlJarwan, also acknowledges the great effort of the 14 prominent professors in the fields of Tolerance and Peace from UAE, USA, Portugal, Albania, Italy, New Zeeland, and Spain who contributed to the development of the book.
He also stated that “ This is just the start and we will continue to work through the council’s programs and activities in order to pave the way for a world of Tolerance and Peace ”
