2016 International Observer Program - Egypt

October 30, 2016 – November 14, 2016

International Observer Program (IOP) for Egypt focused on “Diversity in America: Interfaith, Community, Democracy and Inclusiveness”

Diversity in America provided opportunities for delegation members to gain a deeper understanding about religious and cultural pluralism in America, experience the lives of Muslims in America, and witness the contributions of Muslim Americans to the larger society.

The program also enabled delegates to:

  • Explore the history, growth and importance of interfaith initiatives in the U.S.
  • Actively participate in events with religious leaders and communities from diverse backgrounds and faith traditions
  • Engage in face-to-face dialogue with members of society through meetings, seminars, home visits, interfaith events, conferences and other activities
  • Examine religious freedom and discover how it can play such a prominent role in the separation of church and state
  • Observe the process of democracy and the political participation of Americans in the U.S. presidential election process
