For Indonesia and Germany, inter faith dialogue has been  an important pillar of bilateral  relations  for a number of years. Indonesia, as the world’s most populous Muslim-majority country, has the potential to set an example both within the region of Southeast Asia and indeed for Muslim countries worldwide of how  to reconcile the wish for a continuing  role of religion in society with a democratic  and pluralistic order. At the same time, tolerance towards religious minorities and inter-religious harmony  may be at risk in certain localities due to the growing influence of extremist groups and social tensions caused by a variety of factors. In Germany, religious diversit y has been growing  in the past decades with par ticularly the Muslim community growing  in numbers  (former German President  Christian Wulff: “Islam belongs to Germany”). This has sparked both constructive policy responses (e.g. introduction of Muslim religious classes in public schools) but also concerns among certain fac- tions of society.

Acknowledging the potential benefit s of a mutual exchange on inter-religious relations,  Indonesia and Germany have commenced a series of inter faith dialogue meetings to exchange experiences, address shared  challenges and  develop  good  practices for promoting interreligious harmony  and  finding  an appropriate relation between state and religion. At the same time, civil society in Germany and Indonesia have engaged in a vivid exchange on religious issues. A prime example is the cooperation between Universität Göttingen and  Universitas Islam Negeri Sunan Kalijaga Yogyakarta, which have covered diverse issues such as Islamic Justice Systems, Islamic Gender Discourse and Blasphemy in a conference series star ting in 2013 and supported by Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD).
