Purpose: To inform the Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief’s thematic report to be delivered to the 55th session of the UN Human Rights Council.
In this forthcoming report, the Special Rapporteur intends to explore the dimension of hatred and its relationship to intolerance, discrimination, and violence based on religion or belief. She seeks to identify gaps in State and civil society responses to countering advocacy of such hatred, explore their impact, share best practices from the ongoing efforts of different stakeholders, and assess implications for developing transformative responses to counter the advocacy of hatred based on religion or belief.
In this connection, we would like to invite you to contribute to the report by offering your responses and reflections to the questions and issues identified in the fall for inputs which is attached to this message in English, French, and Spanish.
