Portal of organizations working in the field of peacebuilding in Egypt
It was created on the sidelines of the Peacebuilders Project in Egypt 2: Combating Hate Speeches in the Name of Religion within the framework of cooperation between the Maat Foundation for Peace, Development and Human Rights and the King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Center for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (Kaysid Center for Global Dialogue)
Our world today needs us as peacemakers to create and strengthen safe and peaceful societies. International solidarity for peace and development is no longer a choice but rather an obligation on us as individuals, institutions and governments.
As some terrorist operations escalate in various parts of the world targeting innocent individuals, extremist and violent far-right movements are increasing, and hate speech is spreading, thus voices of peace, human solidarity and acceptance of others grow and grow. So, the international cooperation between all parties, including governments, international organizations, civil society and individuals in building societies enjoying sustainable peace, security and safety are also increasing in parallel.
Combating Hate Speech and Violent Extremism field of work focuses on:
Unite with us and be a voice for peace wherever you are
In this field of work, Maat focuses on the role of youth in their societies and the importance of their participation in decision-making processes and raising their awareness of relevant international resolutions such as United Nations Security Council Resolution 2250 and the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, in addition to providing support to the most marginalized groups to integrate them into society and take advantage of development opportunities to achieve community peace.
Maat organizes peaceful rallies in the Broken Chair square, next to the United Nations Palace in Geneva, on issues related to peace and combating hate speech
