Abstrak:

This research is motivated by the fact that compared to many other countries, (institutionalized) inter-religious dialog has had quite a long history in Indonesia. We understand such ?inter-religious dialogue? broadly in terms of encounters of people of different faith, but limited our attention to its institutionalized form. The idea and practice of inter-religious dialog in Indonesia started with the Ministry of Religious Affairs in 1960s. In addition, starting 2001, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs sponsored dialog with other countries in the regional and international levels. Partly as a disappointment to the way dialog was becoming part of government?s way of controlling the relations between religious communities, starting in late 1980s inter-religious dialogue was promoted by many non-governmental organizations (some NGOs were even established to focus on dialog). Most recently, we noted that dialog has been part of the academia: starting late 1990s, courses on dialog are offered and academic programs and centers made dialog as part of their academic interest?CRCS and ICRS-Yogya are two of the latest examples on this.

Our main questions were: what have happened in those three domains of dialog?governmental institutions, NGOs, and the academia?and what motivate them? In this research, we did not intend to document everything that have happened, but tried to find their varieties. The presentation will describe such varieties of dialog, analyze them and give some recommendations as to the course of dialog in the three domains in the future.
