History

Adyan was established on August 6, 2006 by a group of five Lebanese individuals from different religious denominations against the backdrop of the Israeli war on Lebanon and the historically rooted internal sectarian conflicts in the country. Adyan was created as a foundation for interreligious studies and spiritual solidarity. It adopted it as its mission to value religious diversity in its conceptual and practical dimensions, and to promote coexistence and diversity management among individuals and communities, on the social, political, educational and spiritual levels. In addition to cementing its presence in Lebanon, Adyan has succeeded in expanding its global outreach and contribution to international causes by encompassing a number of projects in both Arab and European countries.
Adyan has led a number of activities in order to foster peace, social cohesion and spiritual solidarity between individuals and communities, through positive relations, objective understanding and shared commitment. Adyan comprises three departments: the Institute of Citizenship and Diversity Management, the Community department, and the Media department. The Institute is the academic arm of Adyan. Through its courses, training, research, and conferences, the Institute focuses on the development of thought and skills. The Institute also offers consultancy and invests in policy making, such as strategies for the reform of educational curricula. The Community department brings people from different religions, cultures and beliefs together through its different networks, such as the Adyan Youth Network, the Adyan Families Network, and the Adyan Volunteers Network. Adyan’s networks join around 220 members of all ages and backgrounds. Adyan’s Media department aims to spread the values of pluralism, inclusive citizenship, and peace by covering Adyan’s local and international activities on mainstream and social media, organising awareness campaigns, and producing documentary films.
