Globalization and the communications revolution have transformed the global landscape in a way which points to a need for moral, rather than only political or economic leadership. Moral authority transcends tribal, ethnic or religious lines in its scope, relevance and reach.

This session highlights several successful interfaith models and strategies of interfaith leadership and its efficacy in mitigating conflict and advancing the goals of liberty, prosperity and integrity for the entire human family.
