Topic and scope of the panel: Migration in Abrahamic Religious Traditions
The objective of this panel will be to present theĀ perspectives of religionsĀ (Abrahamic focus in this panel) on the topic ofĀ  "Migration". Migration has been a part of human history and still happening today, maybe at higher scales due to the suffering of people in their homelands. We would like to discuss how religious communities have experienced migration and tackled it as both migrating and/or resident (welcoming) communities, giving examples from the past and present.
