OSCE Conference on Intolerance against Muslims in the West

Europe’s first major conference on intolerance against Muslims wrapped up in Spain with participants stressing that media and education hold the key to solving the problem. “Education is a fundamental instrument in the prevention and treatment of intolerance and discrimination against Muslims,” Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos told the two-day gathering organized by the OSCE in the southern city of Cordoba. Spain currently holds the rotating presidency of the 56-nation member Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
