    Emorys president welcomes the audience to the first summit on
    Religion, Conflict, and Peace-building on October 21,2007 Can the
    religions of the world work together to reduce violent conflict and
    build peaceful, pluralistic societies? This question is more
    challenging than ever, as we witness an escalation of global
    violence invoking religion. To address this challenge, Emory is
    holding its first in a series of summits on Religion, Conflict, and
    Peacebuilding. At this first summit, we feature on-stage, His
    Holiness the Dalai Lama%u2014in conversation with religious leaders
    from Hindu, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim communities, including
    Rabbi David Rosen, Sister Joan Chittister, Professor Rajmohan
    Gandhi, and Professor Abdullahi Ahmed An-Naim. How are they making
    peace differently, and how are they developing new models from their
    own peacemaking experiences%u2014whether it be in Khartoum, in
    Jerusalem, in London, or in Delhi? And how are people addressing
    this issue on the ground in cities, in neighborhoods? What are the
    best local peacemaking practices in places affected by religious
    violence? Can religion also be a source of community renewal and a
    force to promote the common good in such areas? For more information
