Rapid Response Briefing 5

Promoting and Protecting Religious Diversity in the Middle East

Published on 1 December 2013

In the aftermath of regime ruptures in the Arab world and with the political ascendancy of Islamist groups, there has been a mass exodus of citizens belonging to religious minorities from the region.

The question of how to promote and protect diversity in the region is a pressing one. Particularly at a time when Syria – a country with a high level of religious and ethnic heterogeneity – is on the brink of political reconfiguration.

Inclusive policies will be essential to ensure the prospects of advancing holistic human development and real exercise of citizenship.
