The historic Spanish city of Cordoba will host an international conference on “Intolerance and Discrimination against Muslims” on October 9. The conference will be organized by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). The two-day event, which is the first of its kind to be held under the auspices of OSCE, will address the roots and consequences of intolerance and discrimination against Muslims and discuss the important role of media and education in fighting against this phenomenon.
Delegates from OSCE Member States, including those from North America, Europe and Central Asia, as well as Partner States from Asia and the Mediterranean countries will take part in the conference. Spelling out the major features of the conference, Spanish Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Miguel Moratinos underlined the fact that preventing discrimination and intolerance towards Muslims, and creating a positive climate of coexistence in which all faiths may have their place, in mutual harmony, is an ethical imperative of our times.
