Why We Need An International Day Commemorating Victims And Survivors Of Religious Persecution

Every year, the UN commemorates several themed annual days. Two examples are the International Day of the Girl Child or the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. The purpose of commemorating such days is to provide a platform and accommodate debates surrounding important topics that require attention. Governments, international organizations and NGOs are invited to organize activities designed to raise public awareness of the issues. Understandably, establishing such a day is not the aim in itself but can prove to be the first step towards adequate international action to address the issue.
