The Office of the Senate of the Parliament of Kazakhstan has released a collection of materials from the “Religions Against Terrorism” International Conference. The event took place in Astana on May 31, 2016, under the auspices of the Congress of the Leaders of World and Traditional Religions. The main feature of the Astana conference was the unique composition of its participants. Parliamentarians, religious leaders, heads of international organizations and experts met around one big round table for the first time to discuss countering terrorism.
 The publication includes a message from the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev, speeches by the participants of the event and the final conference document.

In the Foreword to the publication the Senate Chairman Kassym-Jomart Tokayev emphasized that the idea of convening such a forum arose from the famous speech by President Nursultan Nazarbayev at the 70th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in which he formulated a number of proposals to counter terrorism.

“In addition to solidifying the key role of religious leaders in the fight against terror, the conference was aimed at strengthening the parliamentary dimension of anti-terrorist activities. The international community needs to improve the legal instruments of countering terrorism and fully explore the potential of parliamentary diplomacy in the fight against this evil”, Mr. Tokayev said.

The book is published in Kazakh, Russian and English languages. Religious leaders of Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism as well as other faiths addressed the conference. The list of the conference speakers also included the Speaker of the UAE Parliament Amal Abdulla Al Qubaisi, vice-speakers from Russia and Azerbaijan, MPs from the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Afghanistan and other countries, as well as heads and leading experts of international organizations such as PACE, OSCE, CICA and SCO.
