The participants discussed various aspects of the problem of religious radicalism, certain elements of the European policy against radicalization, and the system of international monitoring and timely warning of religious communities against possible threats.

Attending the conference among other participants was archpriest Dimitry Sizonenko, acting representative of the Russian Orthodox Church at the European international institutions in Brussels.

Addresses of the representatives of the Commission of the Catholic Bishops’ Conferences, other Churches and religious communities were delivered during panel discussions.

President of the European Parliament Martin Schultz said in his closing speech that it was necessary to develop dialogue with people of different persuasions for the sake of peaceful coexistence based on mutual respect.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
