Dubai, UAE, November 15, 2018:  UAE Minister of Tolerance and Chairman of the Higher Committee of the International Institute for Tolerance, His Excellency Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahyan, has announced two major initiatives as a commitment to the promotion of tolerance. The announcement was made during the opening day of World Tolerance Summit which is being held in Dubai.

In his speech, HE Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahyan said that the Ministry of Tolerance is committed to focus on prospering from pluralism and embracing diversity through innovation and collaboration. He said further that the initiatives will be in cooperation with the International Institute for Tolerance (IIT).

“The first initiative is the launch of the National Research Project on Tolerance. This is a continuing project for the coming years and will promote creativity and innovation of researchers, inside the UAE and throughout the world, in examining factors, conditions and work plans that help strengthening tolerance among individuals, families, local communities and the entire world.  This project will produce proposals and plans for spreading tolerance, coexistence, and happiness in human societies.

“The second initiative is the establishment of the Global Tolerance Alliance for promoting tolerance throughout the world. The Global Tolerance Alliance will be launched from the UAE and will become a global coordinator for cooperation and joint effort among individuals, organizations, research centers, private enterprises, and other interested institutions. The purpose is to help spread peace and tolerance in the world,” the minister said.

The four-fold commitment of the Ministry of Tolerance to spread the culture of peaceful coexistence and tolerance are the organization, conduct, and execution of action plan focusing on Global Network for Tolerance, International Expert Program on Tolerance, Challenge of Tolerance, and Youth Forum for Tolerance, Happiness and the Future. 

The minister further stated that through these initiatives, the global work dimension of the Ministry of Tolerance and IIT will be affirmed. Eventually through these initiatives, the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and all the national leaders, which is to succeed in pluralism will be achieved. Part of these initiatives will focus on extensive research and positive dialogue to ensure the creation of a peaceful future for all. 

Other highlights of the morning session during the first day of the summit were the Tolerance Leaders Debate on how the message of tolerance can spread and how leaders from around the world can promote peace and happiness within the society. The session was participated in by H.E. Dr. Amal Abdullah Al Qubaisi, president of the Federal National Council (UAE), H.E.
