Tuesday 22 November - Wednesday 23 November: Ethics in a Multifaith Society: Muslims and Christians in Dialogue.
The conference "Ethics in a multifaith society: Muslims and Christians in Dialogue" is held in honour of M. Fethullah Gulen, from whom the Australian Catholic University Chair in the Study of Islam and Muslim-Catholic Relations, established in 2007, takes its name. For Fethullah Gulen, dialogue between Jews, Christians and Muslims is imperative, not only because of what followers of these three monotheistic religions have in common, but also because of their shared responsibility to make our world a more peaceful and safer place.
