Funding agreement for Global Centre for Pluralism, Canada
Ottawa, Canada, 25 October 2006 - Signature of a funding agreement for the Global Centre for Pluralism, to be located in Ottawa, Canada. The Global Centre for Pluralism is a major new international centre for research, education and exchange about the values, practices and policies that underpin pluralist societies. Drawing inspiration from the Canadian experience, the centre will function as a global repository and source for knowledge about fostering pluralistic values, policies, and practices. It will work with countries to nurture successful civil societies in which every citizen, irrespective of cultural, religious or ethnic differences, is able to realize his or her full potential.
