The Influences of Religion in Southeast Asia (Part I)

Throughout the month of August, SEAN-CSO’s campaign focused on the influence and impact of religion in Southeast Asia. While religion usually functions to bring people together, in recent years religious intolerance has been on the rise. This month’s newsletter highlights different cases of religious intolerance throughout Southeast Asia. Our hope is to shed some light on the causes of these tensions, offer some solutions for countering intolerance, and showcase the work of individuals and organizations that are promoting tolerance and improving social conditions in their societies.
