The Solvay Library in Brussels welcomed, on the 28th of June 2018, the Faith and Freedom Summit.
The Faith and Freedom Summit: Practicing what we Preach in Europe was a non-partisan summit that brought together leaders from the various fields of politics, government, academia, activism and the non-for-profit sector from across Europe and beyond, in order to propose and develop initiatives that push forward the cause for Freedom of Religion or Belief in Europe.
The Faith and Freedom Summit was particularly timely relevant as in 2018 the world celebrates the 70th Anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration on Human Rights.
Speakers and panellists included former US Congressman Bob McEwen, Former Member of the American Delegation to the European Parliament, Jan Figel, EU Special Envoy for the promotion of Freedom of Religion or Belief outside the European Union,
Amjad Bashir MEP, Member of the Foreign Affairs Committee at the European Parliament, Patricia Duval, Human Rights Attorney, and many more.
With a series of Keynote speeches and panel discussions, the Faith and Freedom Summit was successful in delivering an inclusive take on religious liberties in the world, and particularly inEurope.
