Inter-religious dialogue in schools: A pedagogical and civic unavoidability  [cached]
A. Abdool,J. L. van der Walt,C. Wolhuter
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2009, DOI: 10.4102/hts.v63i2.211
Abstract: Social and civic conflict inspired by the fundamental convictions of different religious groups seems to be rife all over the world, also in schools. One way of addressing this problem is to promote inter-religious dialogue. To establish the viability of this solution, the authors take several steps. They analyze the phenomenon “religion” and discover that it is constituted of several layers or levels that have to be accounted for in the proposed inter-religious dialogue in schools. After discussing the term “dialogue” they consider several approaches to religious diversity or plurality to find a suitable basis for the proposed inter-religious dialogue in schools. Based on these analyses, the authors argue that schools (teacher-educators and learners) should be allowed to engage in inter-religious dialogue as part of their pedagogical and civic duty. This will ensure a better understanding of others and their religions, also at the deepest spiritual level. Such comprehension can contribute to the more peaceful co-existence of people in religiously pluralist societies.
Inter-religious dialogue in schools: A pedagogical and civic unavoidability

Religious Tolerance as the Basic Component of Inter-Religious Dialogue
Marina V. Vorobjova
Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies , 2004,
Abstract: The problem of religious tolerance is of supreme importance in the contemporary world. Just as, a few centuries ago, many wars were provoked by religious motifs, so today clashes on religious grounds provoke military conflicts that have long overgrown the walls of churches and mosques and keep growing in spite of the sacred traditions of the religions themselves. Orientation to love fails to work, and the ìneighbor becomes an enemy if he does not confess the same religion. Where shall we search for the reason behind religious hostility? What is the history of intolerance? Who was the first to throw the stone that shook the foundations of peaceful coexistence of particular families and whole states? We propose to turn to the following themes: 1. World religions and relations between them (on the question of Christian- Judeo-Islamic dialogue) 2. Relations inside world religions (on the example of Christian confessions) 3. Interrelations between world religions and new religious movements.

Just as, a few centuries ago, many wars were provoked by religious motifs, so today clashes on religious grounds provoke military conflicts that have long overgrown the walls of churches and mosques and keep growing in spite of the sacred traditions of the religions themselves. "Orientation to love" fails to work, and the "neighbor" becomes an enemy if he does not confess the same religion. Where shall we search for the reason behind religious hostility?

Europe and the Inter-Religious Dialogue  [PDF]
Anca Parmena Olimid
Revista de Stiinte Politice , 2006,
Abstract: As religion of the entire Europe, Christianity could have been the cohesion factor for the whole continent, the bond of a community of both clergymen and laymen. Maybe for a while Christianity hasmanaged to respond to this challenge, but this same religion, far from drawing people together, has become a disagreement factor.For a long period of time, still, thinking of the Church as the State, Catholicism has been a theocracy in the manner of the ancient Eastern theocracies, by the ideal which placed the clergymenabove the laymen. 19th century Europe thus became the image of a religiously split continent, economically and politicallydivided.

Asian Social Science , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v7n8p112
Abstract: The main objective of this study is to explore the quality of interaction between Muslims and Buddhists in Kampung Tendong. The researcher prepared one relevant indicator to measure quality interaction, that is religious understandings. Using a convenience sampling technique, a total of one hundred and forty (140) respondents were drawn from Muslims and Buddhists of Kampong Tendong, Pasir Mas, Kelantan. The sample size together with the above-mentioned indicators showed that the quality of interaction based on frequency is above average (i.e., 67.83%). Precisely, for “religious understandings” which were divided into two parts ‘intra-religious understandings’ was 82.95% and ‘inter-religious understandings’ was 34.34% with the average percentage of 42.59. The results show universal values of the two religions, namely Islam and Buddhism that bind people together. On the other hand, the discouraging factor of interaction among the residents of Kampung Tendong was that trivial issues of religious differences. Therefore, the significance of the study lies mainly in showing the level of interaction between Muslims and Buddhists in Kampung Tendong. This result is essential to the policy-makers to develop a better pattern of inter-racial interaction in a remote area of Peninsular Malaysia. The study finally discusses the need for broader and more comprehensive research in this area.

Contemporary Ecumenism between the Theologians’ Discourse and the Reality of Inter-Confessional Dialogue. Case Study: Bihor  [cached]
Mircea Brie
Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies , 2009,
Abstract: Religious freedom in Romania after 1989 has contributed decisively to changes in the religious structure in the country. From a religious point of view, the fall of the communist regime meant the end of abuse or interdictions for many people and communities. Discussing about ecumenism and interreligious or inter-confessional dialogue in Bihor is, according to the current demographic realities, a need entailed by the ethno-confessional diversity and multiculturalism specific to the area. The religious diversity has led not only to inter-community tensions but also to better mutual knowledge, a phenomenon that has finally led to dialogue and the establishment of relationships. There is a visible tendency towards the realization of a unity in diversity in full awareness of the obstacles ahead. Beyond the energetic discourse of high Christian clericals, contemporary ecumenism has been met with several impediments imposed by the reality of some “minor” local issues that have remained unsolved over the years. At times, underlying theological issues have been a hindrance to a genuine ecumenical dialogue.
The role of interfaith dialogue in the process of protection and implementation of Human Rights  [cached]
Liliya Sazonova
Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies , 2004,
Abstract: The main thesis of this essay is that the inter-religious dialogue gives us some unique mechanisms for protecting and implementing human rights. This alternative way of implementation of the basic provisions of the international human rights law includes several practices. Among them there are organizing demonstrations, infor- mational campaigns, lobby campaigns for the ratification of certain legal means, monitoring, educational programs, declarations etc. These activities define the inter-religious dialogue movement as a civil society phenom- enon that acts both at the level of international and local NGOs on the one hand, and at the level of the high religious authorities on the other. In this regard, in order to illustrate the inter-religious potential for accomplishing the protection and the implementation of the interna- tional standards, the analysis encompasses the relations between different religious systems as well as between the religious bodies and the state itself.
