About the event
This conference will address the pressing issue of the security of places of worship and the promotion of interfaith dialogue. The guiding thread of this conference is rooted in two essential aspects. Firstly, an ethical dimension that raises questions about the discriminatory potential of security measures. Secondly, a dialogue component that highlights the perceptions and feelings of religious communities, while encouraging the exchange of good practice. The aim of the event is to encourage collaboration between religious organisations, public authorities and civil society to address the growing threats to public spaces, particularly places of worship, in the context of terrorist attacks and acts of intolerance across Europe.
