June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
In this talk titled ‘A Baha’i Approach to Contemporary Global Challenges’, shared in Victoria, Canada on 6 November 2014, Dr. Hossain Danesh shares some personal reflections on the Baha’i approach to contemporary global challenges.
Dr. Hossain Danesh was the Founder and President of the International Education for Peace Institute, and was a professor of Psychiatry (University of Ottawa) and Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution (Landegg International University), and the author of many articles and 11 books in his fields of specialization.

The Baha’i Blog team was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. Danesh, and are forever grateful to him for giving us permission to share these talks, and the profound wealth of knowledge and insight he has left behind through the breadth of his service and works.
