The International Leadership Conferences focus on the urgent need for new vision and leadership based on core values and universal principles of peacebuilding. These conferences have three objectives:

  • To give an in-depth analysis of root causes of conflicts, providing a sound basis for evaluating development and peacebuilding efforts and fostering interreligious and intercultural cooperation.
  • To identify “best practices” responses to conflict and violence.
  • To consider ways the UPF’s network of Ambassadors for Peace can support the UN’s mission to secure peace and accomplish the UN Millennium Development Goals; to promote an interreligious peace council at the UN.
