On December 1, the Mindanao State University (MSU) Mindanao campuses, in partnership with the Equal Access International – Philippines, conducted a seminar dubbed “Interfaith Dialogue During the Challenging Times” as part of the celebration of the Mindanao Week of Peace.


The speakers during the dialogue are Dr. Hamid Barra, BARMM Minister of Human Settlements and Development who discussed about the values of interfaith dialogues in Islam; Msgr Edwin Dela Pena, Bishop Prelate of Marawi, who discussed about human fraternity – an interfaith convergence of peace; Dr. Jayeel Cornelio, Associate Professor and the Director of Development Studies Program of the Ateneo De Manila University, who provided a talk on Filipino religiosity and peace; and Dean Macrina Morados of the UP Institute of Islamic Studies, who provided a lecture on gender and peacebuilding in the Islamic perspective.


At Mustaqim, we hope that these engagements continue and inspire other peace advocates to replicate the same efforts on peace and nation building.
