International Leadership Conference

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.
