Constructive dialogues on religion and democracy

This project supports open public discourse and communication about religion and democracy in Kyrgyzstan.

This includes the freedom of religion and belief, the role of religion in people’s lives, the interrelation between state and religious institutions, and state policies on religion.

We will consider the subject of religion and democracy from various perspectives and facilitate broader discussion among religious and secular experts and young people in the country.

We will also support research to help inform the experts and young people so they can better contribute to policies and counter narratives that fuel suspicion, mistrust and conflict.

In doing so, we hope they can encourage greater tolerance and understanding in society.
