Regional Interfaith Dialogues actively promote ways to resolve conflict and build peace within the participant nations, resourced from their own cultures and faith traditions.
Interfaith Dialogue seeks to strengthen collaborative religious structures and networks for developing conflict resolution skills, innovative practices and proactive attitudes in areas of intercommunal conflict and the sharing of case studies of effective examples of responding to violence.
The Regional Interfaith Dialogues have promoted research on perceptions of conflict, training for religious and spiritual leaders in conflict resolution and peace-building, sharing of case studies and the promotion of the existing traditions of peacemaking and conflict resolution found within the different faith and indigenous traditions.
Opportunities for interaction, exchange and development of relations strengthen faith communities and provide useful foundations for interaction in times of stress, disaster and and peace.
