In his presentation, Bogdan Lubardić, full professor of the Faculty of Orthodox Theology, University of Belgrade, touched the common foundation of Christianity and diplomacy, which are, in principle, directed towards the peaceful resolution of social and political conflicts, and both represent traditional civilizational achievements of pacifying social divisions and conflicts.

In this sense, the thesis was presented that Christianity can offer real-politics an ethical normative framework so that the field of politics does not fall completely into naked pragmatism, while real-politics can offer Christianity and religion in general a factual framework for social action in the direction of concrete pacification of social conflicts and splits, according to the peaceful religious normative pattern.

The second part of the panel, lasting 60 minutes, was consist of a productive debate and conversation with the presenter about his announcement.
