- Representation 'Principles et pratices for a fruitful inter-religious dialogue'
The question of the treatment of religious conflicts is sensitive. Geopolitical, economic, social, ethnic, cultural issues are entangled and need to be treated simultaneously. And it is even more necessary in the new political and religious context born from the Arab revolutions. Therefore an inter-religious dialogue, between Christians and Muslims, in a Euro-Arab perspective is not only relevant but also urgent. Inter-religious dialogue is an important, although often very difficult task. Dogmatism weighs heavily within the major institutions and deepens ideological divisions and social tensions. The dialogue supported by the FPH seems very small in regard to the religious giants. Another reason to continue and to look for means to increase the impact of the innovative thinking carried by this network. The multi-actors dialogue approach -beyond the professionals of religion- rooted in civil society should be encouraged to rethink and revitalise the inter-religious dialogue.
