On the International Day of Tolerance celebrated on November 16 the venividi.ru portal made a selection of the countries with special respect for the views and way of life of their citizens as well as foreign visitors.

 

Australia

According to the rating of the most tolerant countries in the world compiled by "Washington Post", Australia , like other British colonies, is a leader among the most tolerant countries to different worldviews. During the survey no more than 5 % of interviewed Australians said they did not want to see foreigners among their neighbors. Of the 19 million people in Australia, almost a quarter were born abroad, and every year in the country the number of mixed marriages increases. In almost all institutions of Australia locals and visitors are working alongside; however, in politics and jurisprudence representatives of the European race still dominate. But in the IT- companies, the opposite is true - the vast majority of employees are Asian. For those wishing to live and work in Australia, there is only one unwritten rule: they must behave tolerantly. The Australian government also treats gay rights without prejudice - throughout the country gay marriages and adoptions are allowed .

 

Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan may be an example of religious tolerance; it was ahead of the level of tolerance of not only Asian, but most European countries. The country with 95 % of the population who are Muslims was able to secure a peaceful and comfortable accommodation of people of other faiths and nationalities and to earn praise from the vice-president of the European Parliament. The model of tolerance in Azerbaijan today is considered an example for the Muslim world and is actively being discussed at many international conferences and forums. The country's leaders believe that people, no matter what religion they belong to, are obliged to respect all other cultures, religions , moral values and be tolerant to all traditions, whether they are acceptable to them or not.

 

Argentina

In contrast to Asia, which is not always tolerant, virtually the whole of South America except Venezuela and the Dominican Republic is located on top of the ranking of the most tolerant countries in the world. One of the countries which is most friendly to people of any race, religion and sexual identity is Argentina. According to statistics, 98 percent of the population of Argentina are ethnic Europeans, and a million and a half even have Slavic ancestors. Knowing that their country was created thanks to immigration, today's inhabitants of Argentina are always glad to welcome visitors, if they do not have criminal records and have the right education and some cash. Argentina is famous for religious tolerance, and thanks to the initiative of the Ministry of Education of the country 60,000 young Argentines spend an hour a week talking to Christians, Jews and Muslims in their temples and learning more about the basics of different religious denominations. With regard to sexual minorities, Argentina became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage.

 

Canada

The largest country in the Americas calls tolerance one of its basic values. This is a historical pattern: from ancient times all the disadvantaged and repressed people that had no place in their countries perceive Canada as a final resting place. Since then, little has changed: in Canada, a federation of ten provinces and three territories, people are very respectful to people of all nationalities and races. In Vancouver, for example, in recent years signs began to be created not only in the country's official languages, French and English, but also in Chinese - just to make it easier for people to navigate. There are virtually no racial prejudices: the representatives of various ethnic groups coexist peacefully with each other. According to surveys, almost 50 per cent of Canadians believe that accounting information relating to national identity should be repealed. There is similar attitude among the Canadians towards sexual minorities: here there are regular gay parades and legalized same-sex marriage .

 

Sweden

Since 1950, Sweden has become a multi-ethnic state - more than one fifth of the population are of foreign origin. For many years, the authorities of Sweden consider the right to political asylum to be one of inviolable human rights, regardless of ethnicity, political or religious affiliation. Sweden contributes to assimilate newcomers and provide them with the best opportunities for long-term settlement more than other EU countries. Having come to Sweden legally, an immigrant receives the same freedoms and rights as native Swedes, except the right to vote. The procedure for obtaining citizenship does not include a test of the knowledge of the Swedish language, as the country's authorities are confident that this could humiliate the dignity of man and is inhumane. In Sweden, there is no discrimination based on gender, same-sex marriages are allowed, and there is even a special film screenings rating system which depends on the principle of equality of the sexes.
