WASHINGTON – The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) hosted a roundtable for the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity (HCHF) on Friday, to discuss areas of cooperation and ways to promote human fraternity at governmental and educational levels, in the United States and
around the world.
The event took place at the headquarters of the USIP, a nonpartisan and independent institute founded by US Congress, which is dedicated to the proposition that a world without violent conflict is possible, practical, and essential for American and global security.
The HCHF was represented by HCHF Secretary-General Judge Mohamed Abdelsalam, HCHF members Rabbi M. Bruce Lustig and Irina Bokova, and HCHF adviser Adama Dieng. Experts from USIP, the American Jewish Committee, USAID, and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum were in attendance, as well as representatives from the US State Department and the Embassy of Bahrain in the US.
“This fruitful discussion on how to advance global human fraternity and peace comes during a time of increased crisis and conflict in our world. The exchanging of knowledge and ideas on how to support those working to build a more peaceful world is crucial,” said Judge Mohamed Abdelsalam, adding that the HCHF looks forward to continuing the conversation with USIP.
