Conscience, Community & Citizenship: Religious Pluralism in an Age of Religious Nationalism Symposium

‘If societies are to thrive, not just survive, there must be a set of common values that undergird social and governmental interactions. Values are often derived from religion, yet there is deep misunderstanding among and between people of different faith (and no faith) backgrounds, which can threaten the social cohesion of communities. Our times suggest that values may not be common—within or across groups—and that religions are being manipulated (sometimes by governments) for the benefit of majority groups. This has led towards increased segmentation and polarization in societies, which has been exploited by those seeking to foment division” - The Aspen Institute webpage
