The Asian Regional Tolerance Across Cultures Conference
November 16-17,2020

On behalf of my colleagues, members of the Board of Trustees and Advisory Board of the International Foundation for Tolerance, I greet you here with warm words of love to invite you to join us at our Asian Regional Tolerance Across Cultures Conference. The Conference is for two days November 16-17,2020. Due to the current global health situation, the conference will be held virtually through a conference online platform such as Zoom.

We have a selected panel of international speakers and researchers from different part of the world. The conference will feature 2-3 concurrent sessions in Arabic and 1-2 in English. This is to provide everybody with more choices of sessions. We will distribute all the conference papers to all registered delegates.

The conference is FREE and no registration fees to be paid. However, for those who may request a certificate of attendance, there will be a small fee for that.

Looking forward to meet you virtually at the Conference, we request to take care and stay safe.
