G20 Interfaith Forum

Leader: Katherine Marshall

The G20 Interfaith Forum has convened annually since 2014 in the G20 host country. There have thus been meetings in Argentina, Australia, China, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates. The G20 Interfaith Forum offers a platform where networks of religiously linked institutions and initiatives engage on global agendas. The forums have considered wide-ranging agendas, including economic models and systems, the environment, women, families, children, work, humanitarian aid, health, education, freedom of religion or belief, global security, governance, human rights, and the rule of law. The agenda for each forum is framed taking into account G20 priorities (outlined each year by the host government), together with topics that the various networks of religious actors recommend that the G20 leaders address. Since 2017, Berkley Center Senior Fellow Katherine Marshall has served on the G20 Interfaith Association Advisory Council and contributed to the recommendations and policy briefs developed by the G20 Interfaith Forum.
