International Conference. Responses to Fratelli Tutti from different religious traditions.
May 23 - May 25
From May 23-25, 2023, the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics and Human Rights will hold its 9th international workshop to discuss the Encyclical Fratelli Tutti of Pope Francis from the perspectives of different major world religious traditions.
Fratelli tutti makes a critical analysis on the actual condition of the world today, prone to conflict, miscommunication, and closeness. Speakers from 6 traditions—Christian orthodoxy, Judaism, Islam, Confucianism, Hinduism, and Buddhism—will offer a commentary to chapters 5-8 of this encyclical. These chapters make a more practical proposal as to how political, societal, and religious groups can encourage a greater sense of fraternity and solidarity in our globalized reality.
