The Seminar on Role of Faith Actors in Implementing the Global Compact on Refugees, that took place in Beirut on June 18, 2019, sought not only to bring together leaders and faith-based organisations from the three main sects together, but to also engage government officials and secular NGOs in order to propose a more unified and strategic response to the crisis. Together they united in recognition of the important role that faith and faith-leaders can, and increasingly must, play in all areas of the refugee response – from preventing the break out of conflict , to helping refugees integrate into their host societies when they are forced to flee, to even helping to resolve conflicts once violence breaks out, and setting durable foundations for peace.
