An Embattled Right: Protecting and Promoting Freedom of Religion or Belief
Over 100 Parliamentarians from 60 countries met in Berlin, with the German Chancellor, Dr. Angela Merkel, to agree to ways in which they can work together to protect and promote freedom of religion or belief for all.
Parliamentarians met at the invitation of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and the IPPFoRB for a series of workshops and seminars aimed at building their capacity to defend this right.
During the course of the week, Parliamentarians addressed specific freedom of religion or belief concerns in Eritrea, Pakistan, Sudan, Myanmar and Vietnam.
