To address the most urgent issues of today's society, coexistence and peace, hundreds of Religious Leaders of all faiths and Personalities from the world of culture and politics for more than 60 countries, will meet since next September 9th  to 11th to Sarajevo, city symbol of contemporary history.

The International Conference is promoted by the Community of Sant'Egidio, in close collaboration with the Islamic Community in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Serbian Orthodox Patriarchate, the Archdiocese of Vrhbosna-Sarajevo and the Jewish Community in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The initiative is backed by the full support of all Institutions and Governments of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It will be the greatest conference of religious and political dialogue since the end of ’92 war.

This year the spirit of Assisi will arrive to Sarajevo. In the hall  that welcomed Pope John Paul II during his historical visit to Sarajevo in 1997 the Press Conference to launch the International Meeting for Peace: “Sarajevo 2012” will be held.
