The role of religious leaders and faith-based organizations is central to prevent atrocity crimes.

That was the main message shared by many participants at a two-day forum ending on Friday in Fez, Morocco, organized by the UN office on Genocide Prevention and the Responsibility to Protect.

The objective of the meeting was to lay the foundations for an Action Plan that will allow religious leaders to act against incitement to hatred and mass violence.

Madiha Sultan spoke with Mr Mohamed Abu-Elnimr, the Special Adviser to the King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue.

She began by asking him about the role of religious leaders in fighting hate speech and atrocity crimes.
