Dialogue of Cultures
The Dialogue of Cultures is an important topic in the bilateral relations between Austria and Indonesia.
In September 2010, the Indonesian Foreign Ministry in cooperation with the “Institute of Hindu Dharma Negeri Denpasar“ organized a bilateral dialogue symposium in Bali. The main topic of discussion was the role of women in religion, society and politics. This was already the fourth intercultural dialogue symposium between Austrian and Indonesia. The next meeting will take place 2014/2015 in Vienna.
On the occasion of the state visit of the Austrian Federal President Heinz Fischer to Indonesia on November 19th 2011, a joint statement on the cooperation in the field of dialogue of cultures was signed by the Foreign Ministries - with both Presidents attending the signing.
Austria, due to its history and geopolitical situation, has a long-standing tradition in intercultural and inter-religious dialogue activities, in particular with the Muslim world and Islam in Europe. The legal recognition of Islam as early as 1912 has contributed to the fact that dialogue has featured prominently on Austria’s foreign policy agenda for decades.
