With the global refugee crisis that has displaced tens of millions of people, religious leaders were invited to an Ethics in Action conference at the Vatican in May, along with academics and civic leaders, to identify the shared values and ethics that can effectively address this critical challenge. In his remarks at the summit, Zaytuna College president Hamza Yusuf made clear that seeking refuge is a perennial human condition. Part of his statement, posted below, was also incorporated into the final Statement on Migration published on June 2 with the launch of Faith over Fear, a campaign that calls on all religions to lead the way in overcoming fear of the other and to welcome and support refugees.
