Decmber 6th, 2016
On 5 and 6 December 2016 in Brussels Dr. Solomon Passy will take part in the Liberal International Human Rights Committee’s meeting to debate radicalization and freedom of belief. Under the theme Freedom of Belief in an Era of Radicalization, the LI Human Rights Committee will convene to discuss strategies to debunk the stigmatization of religious and in particular Muslim minorities when it comes to radicalization and violent extremism and, at the same time address, the fine line between freedom of speech and freedom of belief. Friedrich Nauman Stiftung and the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) in the EU Parliament are partners in the event.
In his presentation Dr. Passy will emphasize on the fighting against propaganda and creating counter-narratives to commonly held beliefs and attitudes, as well as finding practical solutions to address challenges of migration.
