Past work

national interfaith network was established to facilitate cooperation and exchange between faith communities and government in New Zealand and in the Asia Pacific region in the furtherance of peace, security and harmonious relations.

The network is facilitated by the Race Relations Commissioner and comprises networks of national and local religious communities and organisations, national and local interfaith groups, academics and others involved in religious studies, government agencies and local government and individuals with an interest in the issue.

Its purpose is to provide opportunities for engagement within and between these networks at a variety of levels, to support and publicise groups that undertake interfaith activities, projects and programmes that contribute to religious tolerance, public understanding of religions and interfaith cooperation for peace, security and harmonious relations.
