Wars and extreme climatic conditions or individual disasters like the explosion in Beirut drive people from their homes all over the world. They seek refuge often in places where there is neither running water nor medical care. Lebanon, Syria, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Sudan and Somalia are the countries with the largest refugee movements at present. Although the international community acknowledges that refugees all over the world have to live in inhumane conditions, it has not been able to develop common strategies to prevent this. In addition, the world is currently confronted with the Black Life Matters movement and the issue of racism not only in the USA, but worldwide.

To develop strategies for prevention and help, it needs diplomatic experience, empathy and sensitivity in both politics and religion. And it needs the help of multipliers who have been active in the crisis regions for decades: religious communities. At the point where political diplomacy reaches its limits, the network of the Religions for Peace movement takes up its work and initiates solution-oriented discussions.
