The Muslim Council of Elders hosted a seminar at the International Publishing and Book Fair in Rabat titled: "Identarian Peace Management in the Muslim World: Concepts, Underpinnings, and Mechanisms." The seminar was presented by Dr. Samir Boudinar, Director of the Al Hokama Center for Peace Research, and Dr. Fouad Bouali, Director of the "Identity Harmony Management in the Muslim World" project.

During the seminar, Dr. Samir Boudinar emphasized that the Muslim Council of Elders places significant importance on the issue of "Identarian Peace Management in the Muslim World," having issued a dedicated book addressing this matter. This book is among the latest releases for the year 2024, showcased at the International Publishing and Book Fair in Rabat. He underscored the significance of identity, which represents an urgent need in the contemporary Islamic world and is not merely a problematic concept but is intertwined with complex notions and social patterns, necessitating clear visions and effective strategies to address the challenges and problems that may arise from identity differences within Muslim communities.

Dr. Fouad Bouali added that effectively managing identity can make it a factor in development and social harmony. He commended the efforts of the Muslim Council of Elders in shedding light on the issue of "Identarian Peace Management in the Muslim World" and revisiting the fundamental principles of societal and local peace. This is achieved through the publication of a book that serves as a theoretical introduction to the "Identity Harmony Management in the Muslim World" project. The first section of the book discusses the concept of identity and identarian peace, while the second section delves into the Muslim world, attempting to theoretically define and adjust concepts to embark on research work.
