On 13-20 February 2017 Baku International Centre of Multiculturalism will organize the IV International Winter School of Multiculturalism under the motto “Multiculturalism as the Lifestyle in Azerbaijan: What Does Islamic Solidary Give Us?” in Baku and the disricts of Shaki, Oghuz, Gabala and Gakh jointly with the Knowledge Foundation under the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan. In this connection, Baku International Centre of Multiculturalism has recently held a meeting of final discussion of the preparation work for the subsequent winter school.

Speaking at the meeting, the State Counselor on Multiculturalism, Interethnic and Religious Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Chair of the Board of Trustees of Baku International Centre of Multiculturalism, Academician Kamal Abdullayev noted that the Centre of Multiculturalism has declared the target, as defined by the President, to present Azerbaijan, our country’s multicultural values, its traditions of tolerance in the world as the mainstream of the institution, “2016 – the Year of Multiculturalism” is over as a calendar year. The years, centuries will pass, but the multicultural mood, the mercy on others, the feelings of empathy and love that exist in the soul, spirit of  the Azerbaijani people will always remain in the focus of the international community as a lifestyle within its series of eternal values. The declaration of 2017 as “the Year of Islamic Solidarity” by the President’s Order can be considered the logical continuation of “the Year of Multiculturalism”. Taking into account the extremely sensitive and deep implications included into this idea by President Ilham Aliyev, the Centre of Multiculturalism will hold the subsequent international school of multiculturalism under the motto of “What Does Islamic Solidarity Give Us?” this year.

The international winter and summer schools of multiculturalism, which have turned into a tradition already, are among the projects the country leadership attaches importance to. There is a long path stretching to the realization of this project: the Centre of Multiculturalism holds intensive training sessions for the specialists who will teach the course “Azerbaijani Multiculturalism” and further these specialists introduce the system of supreme values encompassed by Azerbaijani multiculturalism to the students at local and foreign univerisities. The specialists of the Centre regularly conduct monitoring to define the quality of teaching the mentioned course in the higher educational institutions where it is taught. Then international summer and winter schools of multiculturalism are organizaed to familiarize those students with all they have learnt on Azerbaijani multiculturalism in practice. Through the internationaal schools of multiculturalism the interest in Azerbaijan turns into the love of it. The International  Club of the Young Friends of Azerbaijan established at the initiative of the foreign participants of the III International School of Multiculturalism is the manifestation of the love of our country. At present the Club has over 200 members who act as the advocates of the Azerbaijani realities in different countries of the world.

The final preparation work for the IV International Winter School of Multiculturalism has been accomplished. We are convinced that the Centre of Multiculturalism will carry out the IV International Winter School of Multiculturalism on high level as before and make its decent contribution to the realization of the target defined by the Head of our state as well as to “Islamic Solidarity”.

It should be noted that the IV International Winter School of Multiculturalism will be attended by the students from the famous universities of Portugal, Italy, Germany, Russia, Czechia, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Israel, the USA, Macedonia, Greece, Vietnam, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Egypt, Poland, Jordan and Romania along with Azerbaijan. At the IV International Winter School of Multiculturalism the local specialists and foreign scholars will make presentations on the national and religious diversity in our country, the importance of Islamic solidarity, teaching the course “Azerbaijani Multiculturalism” abroad, the policy of multiculturalism of the Republic of Azerbaijan, also there will be a demonstration of the extended video presentation on “What Does Islamic Solidarity Give us?”

During the winter school the participants are to visit Azerbaijan’s unique multicultural and multiconfessional sights, meet the outstanding state and religious figures as well as the representatives of different religious and ethnic communities living in our country.
