Interfaith dialogue is defined as constructive, positive, and cooperative communication or interaction between people of different religious traditions and/or spiritual or humanistic beliefs, including those who are not affiliated with a particular religion. Interfaith dialogue promotes understanding and acceptance between those of different beliefs. Rather than imposing the adoption of others’ beliefs, this approach encourages engagement in reciprocally inspiring relationships with people of diverse backgrounds. Interfaith cooperation refers to people and/or communities of different faith and non-faith traditions uniting toward social action for the common good. For example, there has been interfaith cooperation toward ending human trafficking and protecting minorities against violent extremism.
