Southeastasia

Southeast Asia

Religious traditions represent a significant factor in identity and cultural cohesion in Southeast Asia. While Buddhism dominates the mainland and Islam is the dominant force in the archipelago, Christianity and Hinduism are also present and active in the region. Each of these faiths actively participates in development work, ranging from environmental issues to economic justice. There are also many international faith-based organizations engaged in Southeast Asian development initiatives. Despite occasional tension between faiths, such as Christianity and Islam in the Philippines, interfaith partnerships continue to grow as faith actors seek best practices for development in their diverse region. The resources found on this page highlight prominent organizations, publications, and events relevant to faith-based development work in Southeast Asia. The resources are part of an ongoing initiative focused on religion and global development sponsored by the Luce Foundation.
