ICRD envisions a world free of identity-based conflict through faith-based diplomacy.
Addressing identity-based conflict that exceed the reach of traditional diplomacy by incorporating religion as part of the solution.
Bridging the political and religious spheres in support of peacemaking. Deploying inter-religious action teams to areas where conflict threatens or has already erupted. Training clergy and laity in the skills of peacemaking. Supporting interpretations of religious teachings that reduce misunderstanding and conflict.
By including religious reconciliation in diplomatic engagements, whether official or unofficial, ICRD believes it has created a new synergy for peacemaking that can meet two important needs (1) minimising the occasions for armed conflict and (2) creating a more stable global environment in which economic growth to benefit more of the worlds population can be achieved.
Officers and staff, advisory council, board of directors.
To prevent or resolve identity-based conflict. when struggles of individual or group identity are a primary factor in the conflict, religious identity is a driver of conflict or religious identity could act as a potential mitigator of conflict. Action where communal conflicts exceed the reach of traditional diplomacy, for example official diplomats cannot reach important conflict actors, religious actors are actively involved in conflict, or are ineffectively engaged in peace processes.
