Article full text: 

The Swedish Institute in Alexandria [see: http://www.swedenabroad.com/Start____5296.aspx ] directed by Jan Henningsson hosts a delegation comprising 15 Muslim Swedish youth for ten days who received a training course in Islamic studies at Ibn Rushd Institute for Islamic Studies in Sweden.
The delegation will receive training on how to be advocates of peace and dialogue through learning about Islām, the religion of tolerance and peace, so that they would be able to present its true image in the Swedish community.

The delegation will hold meetings with many Muslim intellectuals and some Christian clergymen in which many issues will be discussed such as the youth status in the world today, Islām and peace- making, Arab-Europe and Muslim-Christian relations.
