About the

Higher Committee

of Human Fraternity

The Higher Committee of Human Fraternity comprises a diverse set of international religious leaders, educational scholars and cultural leaders who were inspired by the Document on Human Fraternity, and are dedicated to sharing its message of mutual understanding and peace.


They have been tasked with acting on the aspirations outlined in the Document on Human Fraternity and will meet with religious leaders, heads of international organizations and others across the world to support and spread the values of mutual respect and peaceful coexistence. In addition, the committee will provide counsel on a variety of initiatives, including the Abrahamic Family House to be built in Abu Dhabi.


As the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity international activities progress, its membership will expand to include leaders of other faiths, denominations and beliefs. The Higher Committee aspires to undertake complex challenges facing communities of all faiths, with an approach of openness, learning and dialogue. The committee is currently in the early stages of its formation, establishing the groundwork for its future activities.
