The publication, entitled “Muslims in Europe: The Road to Social Harmony – Proceedings of the UN Geneva side event held on 19 September 2016 and lessons learned” is the fruit of a panel discussion organized at UNOG by the Geneva Centre on the occasion of the 33rd session of the UN Human Rights Council. In an innovative approach, the discussion of the book suggests, among others, that there is a need to promote through joint action and to ensure through the exercise of collective responsibility, a reversal of the distortion and manipulation of all religions. This means resorting to awareness promotion via the media and public discourse. Required action includes rolling back socio-economic marginalization through an inclusive and participatory process and a consensual approach.
