Event description

Description

In line with the latest announcement from the University of Edinburgh's Principal and Vice-Chancellor, at 5.04pm today, we regret to inform you that we will be postponing our inaugural conference this weekend.

An emergency meeting of senior staff was convened earlier today due to this global public health emergency, and it was decided that teaching activities would be cancelled next week and remote delivery would begin on 23rd March.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the short notice, due to this rapidly changing situation, however the safety of our participants is our top priority. We will keep everyone informed of future plans for the conference.

--------

Edinburgh Coexistence Initiative is proud to announce our inaugural conference, on Sunday 15th March 2020, at the University of Edinburgh's Chaplaincy (Auditorium).

The theme for this year is "Conflict and Peacebuilding in the world today: an Interfaith Perspective".

This first of its kind conference aims to explore the role of religions in facilitating peace around the globe. It will also provide some historical insights into the interplay between religion, conflict and politics. We will be bringing together renowned academics and scholars from the different faith groups, to facilitate a truly interfaith dialogue (we will also have researchers presenting their exciting work on the day!).

Brought to you by the Edinburgh University Coexistence Initiative, in collaboration with the Edinburgh Interfaith Association (EIFA), Interfaith Scotland, and The Chaplaincy, University of Edinburgh.
