The role of faith in dealing with trauma was the focus of the first Forum on International Peacebuilding.

Psychologist and influential Indonesian human rights and democracy networker, Alissa Wahid, was the opening speaker at Mission 21's first international online peacebuilding forum. What role do faith and religion play in addressing trauma? More wanted to know about this - from over 45 countries, they tuned in! In presentations and workshops, they received valuable reports from the field, impulses for their own work and exchanged ideas online.

The presentations of the two-day forum are now available online. The keynote presentation by Alissa Wahid provides an exciting insight into the potential that faith and religion offer to promote peace and reconciliation and to enable people to overcome trauma.  

Impressive reports and workshops from Latin America, Africa and Asia provided insights into practice and the opportunity to discuss questions in exchange.  

On the second day of the forum, Septemmy Lakawa, professor of theology from Indonesia, demonstrated ways to make art effective in outreach to address trauma and address interfaith conflict.
