Marking International Day for Tolerance.

In today’s world, still burdened by ever-growing challenges such as forced displacement, conflicts, environmental disasters, human rights abuses, intolerance xenophobia and populism, it seems more important than ever to strengthen international solidarity and cooperation among the family of nations. In this regard, multilateralism, tolerance and international solidarity are interrelated. They are critical instruments to foster appreciation, mutual respect and dialogue in a concerted search for the common good, while acknowledging the intrinsic ties of the human family mosaic.
The panel discussion will highlight the contribution of multilateralism and international solidarity to tackling some of the contemporary global challenges faced by the international community and its contributions to a more just and inclusive world for all, with equal dignity and without distinction.

Copies of the book, “The Vatican in the Family of Nations: Diplomatic Actions of the Holy See at the UN and other International Organizations in Geneva” will be sold at the event
