This Report on “Regional Trends in Interreligious Relations 2019” covers regional developments in inter-religious relations in plural societies. Specifically, it examines religiously motivated conflicts and violence, initiatives which promote peacebuilding, policy formulation in furtherance of religious freedom and dialogue as well as hate speech prevention and other significant occurrences or trends in the encounter amongst religions.
It is the outcome of a yearlong monitoring and analysis of a diversity of reports on the state of inter-religious relations and religious affairs in Asian societies, under the broad theme of Religion, Conflict, and Peacebuilding. These reports are gathered from a myriad of sources including local, regional, international, independent, online, and conventional media (religious and other), to offer balanced perspectives to readers.
The distinctive focus of the Report is Asia. It stems from the SRP’s interest in studying developments in Asia pertaining to religion as they can directly, or indirectly, impact all states (including Singapore) due to their high levels of interconnectivity.
This presentation will be followed by a Q&A session and discussion moderated by Head, SRP.
