Mufti Albir-Hazrat spoke on mediation at “Community” forum

Moscow, November 2, 2019

The two-day “Community” forum, which completes the annual forum campaign of the Public Chamber of Russia, was held last week in Moscow. The head of the Spiritual Assembly of Muslims of Russia, Albir-Khazrat Krganov, moderated the section: “Mediation as a modern way of preventing and resolving interethnic conflicts.”

The section organizers urged that the development of this institution in Russia would be the key to further strengthening statehood and an effective tool in harmonizing social relations.

Mediation as a modern way of preventing and resolving interethnic conflicts was discussed at one of the sections of the second day of the “Community” forum of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation.

Mediation is a tool that has been proven and widely used in world practice. It allows resolving ethnoreligious and other conflicts with high efficiency. For example, this tool may provide painless adaptation and further integration of migrants into local communities.

Mufti Albir-Khazrat noted that the whole world and Russia as well, are currently undergoing dramatic changes of a geopolitical, social and economic nature.

Our state and society as a whole have a strategic task to preserve and strengthen our positions in the global competition.

Up to this the President Vladimir Putin initiated on May 7, 2018 the Decree “On National Goals and Strategic Tasks of the Development of the Russian Federation for the Period until 2024”.

“It is not something new for multinational Russia. Mediation is not a new method for our people. This is a classic tool that was used and it is described even in ancient works of our peoples”, said the head of the Spiritual Assembly of Muslims of Russia, deputy chairman of the Commission of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation on harmonization of interethnic and interreligious relations.

It should be noted that Albir Krganov heads the working group on interethnic and interreligious mediation.
