This event, kindly hosted by Lord Alderdice in the House of Lords in Westminster, brought together leading academics and front line practitioners from India and Indonesia to talk about the role of Islamic women in building peaceful communities.

Religion and peaceful communities

“discussion about how the State can work alongside religious communities to build peaceful societies.”

It was lead by Professor Azyumardi Azra CBE, Senior Professor of Islamic History and Culture and Director of the Graduate School at Sharif Hidayatullah State Islamic University, Jakarta Indonesia; who we are privileged to be welcoming back for RISING 19 Global Peace Forum this year.

More than 50 delegates took part in lively discussion about how the State can work alongside religious communities to build peaceful societies.

Subsequent to this event, the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations at Coventry University has continued to develop close working relationships with their colleagues in Indonesia. They are developing programmes to examine the role of the Women Ulama as social capital change agents, to build a peace studies programme that is tailor made for Indonesian contexts and to research Muslim women-led movements in India, Indonesia and the U.K.
