Qatar will host the 12th Doha Conference of Interfaith Dialogue 2016 next month under the theme ‘The role of faiths… what future for spiritual and intellectual security for society”.

The event, being held by the Doha International Center for Interfaith Dialogue (DICID) will take place on February 16 and February 17.

During the conference winners of the Doha Award for dialogue of religions will be announced, the Qatar News Agency (QNA) reported. A number of institutions and individuals are competing for the award.

The Center will also hold a dialogue for expatriate communities in Qatar in May to discuss different issues concerning their lives. A similar event was held earlier on Qatari law and its relation with expatriates.

Dr. Ibrahim Salih Al Naimi, chairman of DICID told QNA that the interfaith dialogue conference will focus on the prerequisites for dialogue between religions and explore the common points between different heavenly religions.

The forum theme is divided into four areas- the concept of intellectual security as the basic requirement for security of the society, methods of intellectual and moral invasion, how to protect the youth from intellectual invasion and means of preserving intellectual and moral values. 

About 500 delegates from Qatar and outside will discuss the role of media in intellectual invasion and the role of social media in destabilizing intellectual security and the role of some extremist religious elements.
