Focus Areas

At the heart of our work is the belief that the foundation for a peaceful, equitable and unified society is the principle of the oneness of humankind—a principle expressed in the interdependence of the members of the human family.  


Currently our work focuses on four broad themes: Social Cohesion, the Role of Religion in Society, the Freedom of Religion or Belief, and the Role of the Media.

We see each of these themes as being intimately connected to one another, for progress in one supports progress in the others. And together, they advance towards the building of a peaceful, equitable and unified society. 

Some of the many questions that we are exploring with others are: How can religion, in the broadest sense, be a progressive force in society? How can the nature of public dialogue influence the peace and harmony of our society? What influence do the media have in contributing to the way issues are portrayed and discussed? As long as inequality between women and men, in all aspects of life, continues to persist, can women and men achieve their full potential?
