«Trends» highlights role of think tanks as catalysts for global tolerance, peace
Trends Research and
Advisory, in collaboration with the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance for Global
Ethics, convened a roundtable discussion during the Davos Economic Forum 2024,
underscoring the pivotal role of think tanks in advancing the principles of tolerance
and peace worldwide.
The roundtable, themed
"For Establishing Tolerance and Global Peace: Intellectual Visions,"
drew insights from leaders of international research centres and intellectuals
who contributed valuable perspectives.
Central to the dialogue
was the exploration of how tolerance and peace contribute to sustainable
development and their promotion on a global scale. The discussion emphasised
the crucial role of education in solidifying these values, serving as a
foundation for constructing societies rooted in peace and mutual understanding.
Addressing the need for
educational reforms, participants highlighted the importance of adopting
curricula inspired by the values of tolerance and understanding gleaned from
human history, international agreements, and global ethics.
Experts advocated for
emulating the Emirati approach in disseminating these values globally, viewing
it as a significant stride toward a brighter future and enhanced cross-cultural
understanding among diverse populations.
Commenting on these
discussions, Dr. Mohammed Abdullah Al-Ali, CEO of Trends Research and Advisory,
said, "We believe that tolerance and peace are the basis of sustainable
development. They are necessary pillars to create a more just and prosperous world".
