What We Do
Interreligious & Intercultural Outreach in Austria
As the International Dialogue Centre (KAICIID) is based in Vienna, outreach to the Austrian local public has become an integral part of the Centre’s activities. KAICIID believes that in times when ten-sions between cultures are on the rise it is partic-ularly important to foster dialogue between people of different cultures and religions. By engaging local stakeholders of diverse backgrounds in a spectrum of dialogical activities, KAICIID aims to help pro-mote interreligious and intercultural dialogue and its transformative effects on individuals and com-munities. The Austrian outreach activities range from expert lectures on subjects related to interreli-gious and intercultural dialogue, to a wide range of cultural events and exhibitions as well as efforts to cooperate with local NGOs in their support for refu-gees and asylum seekers.
