KAICIID is dedicated to impacting every corner of the world with the transformative power of dialogue. In places torn apart by discrimination and conflict, we recognise that it is often religious leaders and faith-based organizations who serve as trusted mediators and ambassadors of peace. In our field programmes in Africa, the Arab Region, Asia and Europe, we host trainings and workshops which purposely bring opposing parties to the table in order to support them with dialoguing across difference and finding shared values. Our local platforms and networks also provide opportunities for collaboration, knowledge-sharing and resources, as well as training in dialogue facilitation. We believe that when we are united together, we can accomplish so much more.
