BASICALLY, interfaith dialogue is understood as an encounter between people who live by different faith traditions in an atmosphere of mutual trust and acceptance.

Dialogue does not require giving up, hiding or seeking to validate one’s own religious convictions; in fact, the need for being rooted in one’s own tradition to be engaged in a meaningful dialogue is emphasised.

Dialogue can be viewed as a way not only to become informed about the faiths of others but also to rediscover essential dimensions of one’s own. The benefits of removing historical prejudices and enmities as well as the new possibilities for working together for common good can be recognised and affirmed.
