About The Event

Call for Papers

Date: February 2-6, 2024

Venue: Abu Dhabi, UAE

Abstract Submission Deadline: January 23, 2023

Planned to be held in February 2024 in Abu Dhabi, the theme of PLURIEL’s 4th International Congress will be:

Islam and fraternity: impact and prospects of the Abu Dhabi declaration for the living together of Christians and Muslims

It is no exaggeration to say that Pope Francis and the Grand Imam Ahmad Al-Tayyeb took the world by surprise on 4 February 2019 with their joint declaration. The Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together has been hailed as a milestone in interreligious dialogue. The declaration was signed during the first ever papal visit to the Arabian Peninsula, the cradle of Islam.

While it is difficult to assess fully something that is still unfolding, PLURIEL 4th International Congress aims to provide a forum for the discussion and evaluation of the reception of the Document on Human Fraternity on the occasion of its 5th anniversary. What has been the impact so far of the Document on Human Fraternity concerning the coexistence of Christians and Muslims around the globe? Here “impact” refers not only to the complete resolution of concrete conflictual situations involving the adherents of these two faiths, but more fundamentally to the putting into place of creative and transformative processes that consciously work to overcome conflicts and generate human fraternity. How does the Abu Dhabi declaration envisage this human universal fraternity – socially, politically, and theologically? Which are the key areas of concern and the transformations required? Are these transformations realistically attainable?…
