Religiously-motivated violence and extremism pose a challenge for interfaith organisations.
What is the best way for faiths to work together to challenge such extremism, and are we talking
to the right people? Is public government funding for this work being properly spent? Has
interfaith gone wrong, and how can we make it work?
 
The Inter Faith Network for the United Kingdom, and its member organisations, including the
Muslim Council of Britain, Islamic Foundation and Board of Deputies, have been invited to
take part on the panel, and to offer Muslim, Jewish and Christian representatives to speak at this
important event.
 
This panel discussion will take place in the presence of the national media and will be filmed.
 
Registration is required in advance for security purposes. If you would like to attend or for
further information, please write by e-mail to events@allfaithsnetwork.org.uk
