Free lancer to assist trilateral activities.

Many years already the ICCJ is engaged in trilateral dialogue. Conferences in Salamanca (1986), Berlin (1999), Sevilla (2001), Utrecht (2003) and Istanbul (2010) were dedicated to the Jewish/Christian/Muslim dialogue. In 1995 an Abrahamic Forum started its activities, chaired by the late Sheikh Zaki Badawi.


Some of ICCJ´s member organizations are trilateral, e.g. the Three Faith Forum in London and the Interreligious Coordinating Council Israel. ICCJ´s Young Leadership Council is also for many years actively involved in the Jewish-Christian-Muslim dialogue. During the 2010 Istanbul conference the ICCJ Executive Board decided to re-activate the Abrahamic Forum. Nine members of a steering committee have been appointed. Under you may find their names listed. You also may find there the text of the ICCJ resolution to restart the Abrahamic Forum, its preamble, structure and aims. To assist this ICCJ trilateral activity we are inviting free lancers to send in their applications.
