Shared Concern Initiative

 

Launched in April 2005, the Shared Concern Initiative (SCI) idea was conceived, in the context of the Forum 2000 Conference in Prague, by H.H. the Dalai Lama in cooperation with the late President Václav Havel, H.R.H. El Hassan bin Talal and Frederik W. de Klerk. The SCI is an open and informal group of recognized personalities representing various cultures, historical backgrounds, religions, and traditions.

In the interest of fostering principles of good governance, respect for human rights, and tolerance, the SCI endeavors to address, by the issuance of joint-statements, the important challenges of today's world with the understanding that changes towards the better can be effectively promoted with a common voice.
