Interreligious Association for Peace and Development
The new interreligious association, known provisionally as the Interreligious Association for Peace and Development, was launched on November 13, 2017, at an International Leadership Conference in Seoul, South Korea, with the vision that not only should religions cooperate with one another—Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, Jain, and others—they should also work together with the leaders of governments and civil society and the private sector, as partners, for the sake of building the world envisioned by our founders, our ancestors, and, indeed, all people.
