A global conference convened by the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) with the participation of delegations from most UN Nations gathered in the Azerbaijani capital of Baku, making a renewed commitment to creating inclusive societies.

Among the major outcomes from the Global Forum Baku 2016 was the adoption by consensus of the Baku Declaration, a political document that will guide future efforts towards achieving the goals of UNAOC - a body mandated to promote harmony among nations.

The Forum,brought together more than 4,300 participants, including Heads of State and Government, political officials, civil society representatives, religious and youth leaders, who exchanged their perspectives under the main theme on 'Living Together in Inclusive Societies: A Challenge and A Goal.'

The Baku Declaration calls for the implementation of the commitments made there so that Governments, with the support of the civil society, can overcome challenges and move forward towards the goals of living together in inclusive societies for sustainable development.

The Foundation IFIIE has been invited to this important event which afforded the opportunity to meet two prominent religious figures in the Caucasus: the Sheikh Allahshukur Pashazadeh, Grand Mufti of Azerbaijan and Caucasus together with Rav. Milikh Yevdayev , Head of Mountain Jews Community in Baku.
