The participants declared that the new governments which have come to the fore in the wake of the recent revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa should do more to build up public participation through free elections, especially for women and minority groups.
The university scholars urged greater role for Muslim nations at the United Nations Security Council, the International Criminal Court of Justice, and the Non-Aligned Movement.
Other agreements included greater support for economic and financial cooperation, organized fight against unemployment, poverty and corruption, plus the formation of an Islamic Fund for Muslim countries.Last Mod: 12 Aralık 2012, 11:36
