Designação da ação: Pesantren for Peace (PFP): a Project Supporting the Role of Indonesian Islamic Schools to Promote Human Rights and Peaceful Conflict Resolution.
Donor: European Union and Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development
The proposed action aims to strengthen the role of civil society in promoting human rights and supporting the peaceful conciliation of group interests by helping Muslim grass root organisations such as Islamic schools strengthen their potential as a positive force regarding the enforcement of human rights and peaceful resolution of religiously-motivated conflicts.
The overall objective of the action is to positively contribute to the important role of Indonesian moderate Muslims as the dominant religious group in the country in upholding and promoting human rights, democracy, religious tolerance and peaceful conflict resolution in Indonesia. The specific objective of the action is to reinforce and help Islamic schools (so called “pesantren”) realise their responsibility as influential actors of local civil society and make them develop capacities and skills that lead to peaceful dialogue and coexistence with religious minority groups.
