“Dialogue and the Challenge of Extremism
Has Interfaith Gone Wrong?”
Religiously-motivated violence and extremism pose a challenge for interfaith organisations.
What is the best way for faiths to work together to challenge such extremism?
Is public government funding for this work being properly spent?
Has interfaith gone wrong, and how can we make it work?
Are we talking to the right people?

The All Faiths Network has organised this meeting to stimulate discussion on these issues and make a positive contribution to how we can generate constructive, ethical and inclusive interfaith work.
