After convening the expert workshops that led to the adoption of the Rabat Plan of Action in 2012, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in 2017 launched the Beirut Declaration and its 18 commitments on ‘Faith for Rights’. This framework is designed to facilitate exploring the relationship between religions, belief and human rights, seeking to promote critical thinking on these connections to address intolerance and exclusion.

In 2019, the OHCHR launched the ‘Faith for Rights’ Tool Kit, containing 18 modules connected to each of the 18 commitments in the Beirut Declaration. It is intended to be used by faith actors, academic institutions and training experts.
