Conference for the UNESCO Chair, St. Petersburg, June, 2001

The objective of the UNESCO/UNITWIN Network is to promote intercultural and interreligious dialogue within the academic community with the objective of having a better understanding of the complexity of a globalized and interconnected world including issues such as human rights, social and ethical matters.

The UNESCO Chairs on the Intercultural and Interreligious Dialogue have been created in Academic Centres of acknowledged experience in the field, bringing together teachers and researchers specialised in the multidisciplinary aspects of the History of Religions and committed to the promotion of interreligious dialogue. This network aims at fostering educational exchanges amongst students and researchers, including the ones prone to undertake a religious life, providing them with a secular, multireligious and intercultural education.
