Para fomentar el debate democrático  
30-04-2003 5:00 pm Paris – About 20 religious leaders and experts on religion from a number of countries will gather at UNESCO Headquarters from May 5 to 7 to take part in a Buddhist-Muslim Dialogue on the theme “Global Ethic and Good Governance.”

The conference, organized by two NGOs accredited to the United Nations – the Museum of World Religions and the Global Family for Love and Peace – and by the UNESCO Chair for Intercultural and Interreligious Dialogue based in Jerusalem, is part of UNESCO’s Interreligious Dialogue Programme. It will look at the relationship between Islam and Buddhism worldwide and especially in South East Asia.

This Buddhist-Muslim Dialogue, the first to be held under the aegis of a UN agency, will analyse those elements that unite Muslims and Buddhists, especially in South East Asian countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia. Shared values and practices that help to prevent or resolve conflict will be highlighted.

Those attending will include the Venerable Hsin-Tao, founder and head of the Museum of World Religions and of the non-profit organization Global Family for Love and Peace, Rabbi Alon Goshen-Gottstein, coordinator of the UNESCO Chair at the Elijah School for the Study of Wisdom in World Religions (Jerusalem), Abdurrahman Wahid, the former president of Indonesia, Jean Baubérot, head of the history of religion section at the Ecole pratique des hautes études, in Paris, Ananda Guruge, Dean of Hsi Lai University (Los Angeles), and Bétoule Fekkar-Lambiotte, President of the NGO Terres d’Europe (France).
