An inter-religious workshop on Conflict transformation and the study of peace will be held from December 8 to 12 at Phnom Penh in Cambodia.
The workshop is being organised jointly by the Christian Conference of Asia (CCA), Federation of Asian Bishops Conference (FABC) and the Asian Muslim Action Network (AMAN).
According to the CCA Executive Secretary Tony Waworuntu, one of the objectives of the workshop is to raise awareness among Christians and Muslims to stand together as responsible agents of peace in todays world.
Some 40 religious leaders, intellectuals and peace activists representing the two religions from different parts of Asia are expected to attend the workshop. A few Cambodian Buddhists will also be invited to participate as observers.
The organisers hope that this workshop will pave the way for establishing relations of trust and mutual appreciation on which a future can be built.
