High-level meeting on the culture of peace

12-13 November 2008

Following the adoption of the Madrid Declaration in July 2008 at the World Conference on Dialogue, the General Assembly is holding a two-day high-level meeting to review the process initiated at the Conference.

In the course of the International Year for the Rapprochement of Cultures (2010), the General Assembly decided in its resolution 62/90 (December 2007) to hold a meeting with civil society on interreligious and intercultural dialogue, understanding and cooperation for peace.

This two-day November meeting should serve as a preparatory step towards the 2010 event.
