culture, identity and the
inter faith network
The Inter Faith Network for the UK was founded in 1987 to "promote good relations between people of different faiths in this country. Its member organisations include representative bodies from the Baha'i; Buddhist; Christian; Hindu; Jain; Jewish; Muslim; Sikh; and Zoroastrian communities; national and local inter faith bodies; and academic institutions and educational bodies concerned with inter faith issues."
As well as promoting good relations between the faiths it also takes forward a number of issues relevant to the place of religion, identity and the public square:
