Bahrain lectures address peace
8 January 2016
MANAMA, Bahrain — The road to peace is long and arduous, but the journey is not in vain. This was among the main messages offered by Dr. Sawsan El-Hady in talks she delivered on 8 and 9 December, in Bahrain.
An Egyptian scholar of the Arabic language who has championed the cause of peace throughout her life, Dr. El-Hady addressed some 100 people—academics, authors, NGO representatives—over the two days of her visit. Her talks, which led to vibrant discussions among the participants, explored the cultivation of peace at the grassroots, the role of the individual in promoting a harmonious society, and the invaluable contribution of women to peace processes, among other themes.
While acknowledging the formidable challenges before humanity, Dr. El-Hady's talks offered a hopeful vision for the future. But much, she argued, would depend on laying the groundwork for harmonious coexistence among diverse populations. FULL STORY HERE
