As the G20 Group meets this year in Japan, the challenges of today’s world need, more than ever, common responses from key international leaders, both political and religious. Addressing these international, regional and national issues requires collaborative and inclusive approaches from all stakeholders and hence religious institutions and leaders must be key actors in this process. They of course have a responsibility to deal with issues affecting their communities in particular and the human family as a whole. However their efforts should be enhanced by engagement with policy makers and world leaders. Setting up dialogue platforms at community, national and global levels is one method that can enhance such an approach.

The efforts of religious leaders is essential in mobilizing support for constructive and positive change. The transformative power of the universal values that underline all faith groups’ messages of peace and human solidarity is a powerful framework that has proven to be effective in facing many challenges in areas such as peace and development. When policy makers systematically provide inclusive spaces to engage such actors and stakeholders, they enhance the chances for successful intervention programs in order to bring stability, social cohesion and sustained human development. KAICIID’s mandate and convening role is to cultivate and tap into this potential collaboration between political and religious actors through intercultural and interreligious programs. We offer our frameworks and tools to support existing efforts towards peace, social cohesion and common citizenship. In this context, we foster new initiatives to establish and strengthen cooperation among and between religious leaders, institutions and policy makers, as well as with other stakeholders, in order to jointly address the challenges the world faces today.
