In November 2011, representatives of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian faiths gathered in Norway with the blessing and assistance of the Government of Norway. This meeting was of historic importance as it was the first time in the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which senior clerics met to discuss their role and responsibilities in promoting peace in the region.
This significant meeting had several important achievements:
- A strong commitment by the participants to promote interreligious peace in the Middle East
- The signature of all participants on a Document of Principles which is the foundation for interreligious peace in the Middle East
