SOAR Final Seminar
The Strengthening the security and resilience of at-risk religious sites and communities (SOAR) project is holding its Final Seminar in Brussels on March 14, 2023, live-streamed and in-person.

You need to register for this seminar in order to join. Online participants are welcome to post questions in the Q&A on Zoom.

Implemented by project partners The Network for Religious and Traditional Peacemakers, Enhancing Faith Institutions (EFI) and the Architects’ Council of Europe (ACE) and supported by the United Nations Alliance of Civilisations, SOAR contributes to advancing the protection and safeguarding of places for worship. Launched in April 2021, this 2-year project funded by the European Union aims to address the security concerns of religious communities in seven EU countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, and Netherlands).

In 2022 and 2023 National Policy Dialogues have been organized in all focus countries. The dialogues brought together relevant stakeholders such as religious communities, law enforcements and policy makers to share best practices and policy recommendations that support strengthening the safety and security of religious sites and places of worship within the EU and across national contexts of EU Member states.
