Parallel Panel A | Interfaith Dialogue as a venue to resolving present conflicts

Dis­cus­sion of Results from the NGIC regional meet­ing in Rome 26–28, Jan­u­ary; Pre­sen­ta­tion and Dia­logue.

As high­lighted by the dis­cus­sions dur­ing the regional high-level meet­ing organ­ised by the Nizami Gan­javi Inter­na­tional Cen­ter in Rome in Jan­u­ary, inter­faith dia­logue could emerge as an effec­tive tool to address rad­i­cal­i­sa­tion and its roots as well as civil­ian con­flicts where reli­gious argu­ments are fuelling the strife.

  1. Can reli­gion bridge cul­tures and nations in a com­mon under­stand­ing of shared val­ues?
  2. Is there a pos­si­bil­ity to ini­ti­ate inter­faith dia­logue as a way to pre­vent rad­i­cal­i­sa­tion?
  3. (How) can gov­ern­ment lead­ers help/serve nations in a com­mon under­stand­ing of shared val­ues.
