Welcoming the Stranger: Affirmations for Faith Leaders

2012, 26 pp
In December 2012, UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres organized a Dialogue with faith leaders, faith-based humanitarian organizations, academics and government representatives from countries around the world on the theme of "Faith and Protection." At the conclusion of this landmark event, the High Commissioner embraced a recommendation for the development of a Code of Conduct for faith leaders to welcome migrants, refugees and other forcibly displaced people, and stand together against xenophobia.

In response to this call, a coalition of faith-based humanitarian organizations and academic institutions drafted this document.

Welcoming the Stranger is a set of Affirmations, in multiple languages, that inspire leaders of all faiths to welcome the stranger with dignity, respect, and loving support. Use the Affirmations as a practical tool to foster support for refugees and other displaced people in your community.
