A few photos from our gathering at Westminster on Friday, ahead of the many peace-building events led by Islamic centres across the capital, the UK and overseas. Lord Bates kindly welcomed us to Westminster Hall.
The Cordoba Foundation’s Occasional Paper, “Sustainable Peace for a Sustainable Future” was published to coincide with the UN International Day of Peace, with a lead article by the Grand Mufti of Bosnia and a message of support from the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Thank you Umar Qureshi (Forum for International Relations Development) for taking the photographs.
