CDCC strives to meet its aim through the following area of activities:
CDCC seeks to provide more spaces for intercivilisational dialogues by continuously organizing both elite and public forums that discuss issues related to interfaith, cross-cultural, and international relations. Among these forums are quarterly Lecture on Civilisation, occasional Public Lecture and Public Discussion, monthly Roundtable Discussion, occasional International Seminar and annual International Conference. Participants representing a wide variety of groups are involved, including diplomats, policy makers, politicians, academics, activists, corporate executives, journalists, religious leaders, youth leaders, and media representatives.
Networking and Cooperation
In organizing its programs as well as achieving its objectives, CDCC makes considerable efforts to develop networks that will be beneficial for the creation of peaceful atmosphere and the making of effective dialogues and raising public awareness of the need to build bridges between societies, to promote dialogue, greater understanding, and mutual respect and to marshal the collective political will to address the world’s divides.
To mediate the existing conflict as well as prevent any possible conflict, CDCC advocates any policy of the governments or other authorities that is crucial to efforts of reducing cross-cultural tensions and misunderstanding. It tries to influence the decisions of the governments or other authorities which have an impact (either positive or negative) on the state of cultural or civilisational dialogue.
CDCC makes every effort to raise public concerns in Indonesia and abroad with the need for bridging the gap and eliminating misperceptions between cultures and civilisations, as well as to facilitate the academic debate over interfaith, cross-cultural, and international relations. For this reason, CDCC continually disseminates information and ideas through website, a monthly newsletter (CDCC Update), books, a scholarly international journal quarterly published, and articles in media.
CDCC supports any attempt to conduct adequate studies on matters that either inhibit or enhance dialogue and cooperation among people of different faiths, races or ethnics, and nationalities.
