One of the issues raised was the question of reciprocity in terms of religious freedom. One hundred participants, including MEPs and civil servants of the EU institutions, took part in the seminar and in the ensuing debate.
Third meeting of the series of Dialogue Seminars devoted to Islam, Christianity and Europe organised by CEC, COMECE and the Konrad-Adenauer Foundation, on 3 July 2008 in the European Parliament.
The Seminar dealt with the issue of religion's visibility in the European public space, and more specifically with the question of places of worship and religious symbols in clothing.
The panel discussion among Islamic and Christian experts exchanged views on the urgent necessity and aims for intercultural dialogue in Europe.
