Senate – Minister attends Conference on “Religious Freedom, Human Rights and Globalisation”

A Conference on “Religious Freedom, Human Rights and Globalisation”, taking place today in the Koch Hall of the Italian Senate, focuses on the main theme of religious freedom and the most effective ways to protect it. Introductory remarks by Pietro Grasso, President of the Senate, will be followed by Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni on an issue which Italy has always being extremely committed to, especially for promoting respect and protection of religious minorities in general and particularly of Christians in the Middle East.
Protecting religious freedom falls within the larger framework of promoting and protecting human rights, a field in which Italy has been actively engaged for a long time. Italy, with the other EU countries, each year puts forward a UN General Assembly Resolution on the elimination of all forms of intolerance and discrimination based on religion or belief. The meeting’s agenda includes Professor Carlo Cardia’s “La libertà religiosa tra ascesa e crisi dei diritti umani” (Religious Freedom in between the rise and decline of Human rights) and Professor Giuliano Amato’s ” Religious Freedom in today’s international scenario”.
