Interreligious Dialogue Group

The Group for Interreligious Dialogue was created in the Centre of Research in Theories and Practices that Overcome Inequalities in 2004. One of the characteristics of this centre is the diversity of its members, in age, gender, culture, life choices and religious practices, there are people who are non-believers and people from different religions. What joins us together is work in the field of research to overcome all types of social inequalities, as its name indicates.

The group’s objectives:

  • To share individual beliefs from daily life and theoretical reflection.
  •  To make visible transformative and exclusionary factors that are present in different religions with the aim of promoting the transformative factors and denouncing the exclusionary factors.
  • To work on the theme of dialogue between faith and science as compatible concepts.
  •  To study successful practices of interreligious groups that are already making social transformations based on this type of dialogue.
  • To research the role of women in different religions.
  • To establish bridges between theory and practice based on the equality of differences.
  • To promote theories and practices based on a social commitment to social transformation, which are fruit of interreligious dialogue. From this point of view, the aim is to make visible and promote practices in which the people leading this dialogue are non-academic.

As a group we participated in the Catalan Parliament of Religions, held in April 2005. We presented our experience as an interreligious group, together with the Centre for Romà Studies, the Centre for Jewish Studies and Alhiwar, Arab Muslim Studies Group.


After our participation in the Catalan Parliament of Religions, the Xarxa Catalana d’Entitats de Diàleg Interreligiós de la UNESCO proposed that we join them. Now we are members of it.
