"Faith Communities and Civil Society: A Dialog " is a citizens’ exchange for religious leaders, laypeople, and scholars from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, and Arizona.
Under the auspices of the project, 14 Bosnians, 14 Kosovars, and 14 Arizonans make structured visits of up to three weeks to each other's countries. These visits are intended to broaden the understanding of participants from all three countries of the democratic values underlying religious expression and religious diversity in American and Southeast European civil societies.
The project involves critical partnerships with the ASU Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict (CRSC), the ASU Department of Religious Studies, the International Multi-Religious and Intercultural Center (IMIC, Sarajevo), the Faculty of Islamic Studies (Sarajevo), the U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Office in Sarajevo, the Faculty of Islamic Studies (Prishtina), and the Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Office Prishtina.
This project is supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
