Competitive proposals should acknowledge the intersectional nature of societal tensions and should encourage societal actors to use critical thinking skills to separate religious and non-religious disputes. Proposals should also ensure voices of diverse groups, including women, youth, and others, participate in meaningful efforts to mitigate conflict and promote mutual understanding.
