    This Chapter considers the King of Jordan's Amman Message within a European context focusing on the challenges faced within contemporary Europe. Drawing directly on the research experience of launching and implementing the EU-funded 'Promotion of the Amman Message Project in Europe' and the significant learning and insights that followed. Hardy references the Amman Message as a dialogue tool that can be deployed to provide opportunity to rebuild and develop trust. It is the dual audience and dual message that makes the Amman Message so appropriate for the current socio-political climate.
