Convening this World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Office meeting holds a special meaning for the country of Nigeria. For a long time, Nigeria has been constantly surrounded by imposed violence and religious conflicts. As noted in the names of many Nigerians such as “Olufemi,” which means “God loves me,” Nigerians have always been eager to search for answers in alleviating violence caused by religions. Interfaith dialogue through WARP Office meetings only marks the beginning of building peaceful coexistence on behalf of every Nigerian’s wish.
Interfaith dialogue through HWPL World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Office (HWPL WARP Offices) is not only limited to the country of Nigeria. Currently, many World Alliance of Religions’ Peace offices are being established and are actively operating around the world. The offices began as a continuation of the signing of the Peace Agreement by the religious leaders at the WARP Summit in September 2014 in South Korea. Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL and Chairwoman of the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) invited religious leaders from around the world to the WARP Summit. Out of all participants, about 1,000 religious leaders attended the Summit and signed the peace agreement. After returning to their home countries, these religious leaders have been making their best efforts to carry out the promise they had made at the summit by establishing and operating World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Offices in their respective countries with the help of HWPL officers.
