WED Forum: The Role of University in Interfaith Peacemaking

University, especially state university, is a salad bowl of students from all around Indonesia with different cultures and religions. They meet and interact in daily life on campus. However, to get into deeper dialogue, intentional platform is needed. University can be the best platform to make this happens. It makes great impact in interfaith peacemaking and the future of our society. We will see a new religious based student movement is emerging significantly to answer the challenge.
