Training Course: Religious Diversity And Anti-Discrimination

Issues related to the diversity of religion and belief are becoming increasingly important today. Not only has this country become more religiously diverse, providing a rich opportunity for intercultural understanding, but that religious diversity has also become an undeniable aspect in many modern-day conflicts in intercultural relations. It is important to respect the development of individual religious and belief identities and at the same time to confront prejudice and discrimination.

The objectives of the course – run by CEJI in partnership with the JRS Jesuit Refugee Service Malta – are:

  • To raise participants’ consciousness of the uniqueness of each individual’s religious or belief identity
  • To facilitate dialogue and sharing of experiences in the area of religion, belief and culture.
  • To increase participants’ understanding of the concepts and issues related to the diversity of religion and belief.
  • To be able to recognize contemporary manifestations of stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination related to religion and belief.
  • To develop an appreciation for the complexity and richness of religious or belief diversity.
  • To develop individual skills and institutional strategies for creating inclusive intercultural environments.
