As the world is said to be on the cusp of a fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0, do we need a dialogical revolution, or Dialogue 4.0, that is a new era of interreligious dialogue and collaboration to help humankind foster inclusive societies and sustainable development worldwide? In an ever more polarized world, should policymakers see religious actors as partners in building long-term strategies to foster pluralism, social cohesion and sustainable development?
The event is organised with the support of Fondazione per le scienze religiose "Giovanni XXIII" in the context of the European Academy of Religion Annual Conference.
The public roundtable is part of the 10th edition of the ISPI-MFAIC ‘Religions and International Relations’ Programme’ seminar which this year will explore opportunities for collaborative work across the policy agendas of Religious Engagement, Freedom of Religion or Belief, and Sustainable Development by evaluating the idea of Interreligious Engagement Strategies.
