Maarif Institute for Culture and Humanity

The Maarif Institute for Culture and Humanity is an organization based in Indonesia that promotes using Islamic values to encourage interreligious dialogue and cooperation. The institute actively assists Indonesian civil society as it accelerates the consolidation of democracy; it encourages religious groups to get involved in influencing public policy and strengthens indigenous organizations interested in addressing socio-religious issues. Since 2006, the Maarif Institute has facilitated the Indonesian Joint Bishops' Conference for the purpose of furthering interreligious dialogue in the country. The institute was founded by Ahmad Syafii Maarif, former chairman of the prominent Indonesian Islamic organization Muhammadiyah.
