ReIReS goes global! Early June, Dr. Francesca Cadeddu and Dr. Federico Ruozzi of Fscire have presented our research infrastructure on the international G20 Interfaith Forum Japan 2019.
The G20 Interfaith Forum is a platform for raising the level and effectiveness of religious inputs and providing a sharp focus on values on global policy issues. Bringing together global leaders and experts from religion, civil society, government, and academia, this year’s forum focused on issues vital to security and well-being, including refugees, cross-cultural tensions, health, children, aging societies, and care for the earth.
The panel ReIReS contributed to was about the role and responsibilities of media in the field of religion and faith. It reviewed the contemporary media terrain as to its influences, positive and negative, on understandings of religious matters, looking to practical ideas on what might help enhance religious literacy at different levels.
