CONFERENCE: RELIGION, STATE & SOCIETY
IN THE 21ST CENTURY

Politics

As the country with the largest Muslim population in the world, Indonesia is an important partner for Germany regarding the dialogue on religious matters. Thanks to its pluralistic and vivid democracy, Indonesia has great potential to become a role model for other predominantly Muslim countries.

This was the basis for the discussions of the 2-day conference that focused on the correlation between law and religion, the right for freedom of speech as well as the protection of religious minorities.

The participants – politicians, clerics, lecturers and journalists – engaged in an intensive exchange of experiences concerning mutual challenges and addressed the question of an appropriate relation between state and religion.

The conference “Religion, State & Socety in the 21st Century” was organized with the University of Goettingen and Universitas Islam Negeri Sunan Kalijaga (Yogyakarta), both of which have been working together on Islam-related topics for several years.
