Vatican to Host Conference on 'Migration, Xenophobia, and Politically Motivated Populism'

• http://www.breitbart.com, Thomas D. Williams

The WCC said it is partnering with the Vatican department for Promoting Integral Human Development in preparing the conference to be held September 17-20 as part of ongoing work toward "peace-building and migration."

The General of the WCC, Rev. Olav Fykse Tveit, said the meeting would be a "very useful and significant workshop to dig a bit deeper" into the problems of xenophobia as an expression of populism, as well as its links to racism, conflict, and violence in countries around the world.

Last September, the Vatican launched a two-year campaign to change people's minds about migrants and to encourage a more welcoming attitude toward them worldwide.
