24 November - 1 December 2008

Religious freedom and interreligious dialogue was on the agenda of an international ecumenical delegation visiting Pakistan from 24 November to 1 December 2008. The group discussed how churches can help ease political and religions tensions with representatives from churches, the Muslim community and government officials.

The international ecumenical delegation sponsored by the World Council of Churches (WCC) learned about the work of the churches in interreligious relations, how Christians deal with situations of tension and conflict and the contributions made by civil society organizations. Back home, they share their experience with their churches.
