Abstract

This seminar highlights the urgent need for religious communities to build towards peaceful coexistence by increasing mutual understanding and cooperation. The seminar was jointly organised by IAIS Malaysia, the Asia West-East Centre (Asia WE), the University of Tehran, and the Cultural Centre of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Malaysia. Three questions guided the sessions: What are the views of major religions regarding peaceful coexistence? Are there shared principles? If present, how can these shared principles become a platform to promote peace between religious groups?
