World Economic Forum Annual Meeting

23-27 January 2013 Davos-Klosters, Switzerland

While religions are the oldest institutions in the world, they are the slowest to respond to modern issues such as drugs, homosexuality and changing family relationships. As we move into the second decade of the 21st century, it is important to re-examine the place religion holds in the world today.

Dimensions to be addressed:

1. Are we becoming a multi-faith society or one where many have no faith at all?
2. How are religious institutions helping instil tolerance and values in society?
3. How can we reconcile the trends in society’s evolution with religious beliefs?
4. How can we foster freedom of speech and at the same time religious freedom?
