According to its appropriately named "Vienna Declaration,” the forum was aimed, among other things, at an informed debate on how responsible leadership can make a difference in promoting and protecting full enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion and belief in "a context of religious pluralism” and "greater diversity.”
