Indonesia is one of the most diverse countries on the planet. With the largest Muslim population in the world making up the majority of its 247 million inhabitants, Indonesia is also home to Christians, Catholics, Buddhists, Hindus and Confucians, made up of more than 1,000 ethnic groups. Despite a rich history of cultural and religious pluralism, Indonesia has seen a rise in radicalism and intolerance along ethnic, religious and gender lines since the end of Suharto’s 32-year authoritarian regime in 1998. Working in Indonesia since 2002, we use dialogue, innovative leadership trainings and creative multi-media productions to promote tolerance, understanding and peace. We collaborate with civil society, national executive and legislative bodies, as well as law enforcement officers to build a peaceful and plural Indonesia without violent conflict.
