Government officials, international thinktanks, intellectuals, influencers, representatives of international organizations, diplomats, and students will attend the interactive summit, according to the press release. 

The two-day summit will take place at Madinat Jumeirah Conference & Events Centre in Dubai under the patronage of the vice president and prime minister of the UAE, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

The International Institute for Tolerance (IIT) in Dubai established the summit last year as part of an initiative led by His Highness to instill values of tolerance and peace amongst countries, societies, and individuals. 

Dr. Hamad bin Sheikh Ahmed Al Shaibani, the managing director of IIT, believes that the summit demonstrates the UAE’s commitment to the values represented by the culture of dialogue and acceptance in accordance with the UAE’s founding values. 

These values of tolerance were inscribed in the UAE by the founding fathers under late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, according to the press release. 

“Since its inception, the UAE has provided a true translation of the values of tolerance and openness,” Sultan Butti bin Mejren, the Chairman of Emirates Real Estate Solutions, states in the press release. 

“Values of respect and equality derived from sharia laws and authentic Arab customs have helped create this ideal climate in a country like the UAE which ensures tolerance, and where everyone contributes to the progress and prosperity of the society.”
