Abraham Dialogue Institute

Muhammad Shafiq with Dr. George Dardess

Abraham Dialogue Institute of the Hickey Center for Interfaith Studies and Dialogue is created to facilitate dialogue between Abrahamic Faiths with special focus on dialogue between the Middle Eastern countries and America. We have recently designed programs to promote dialogue through sponsoring symposiums in which limited number of scholars and graduate students from different countries will participate. We hope that educational institutions of other countries especially in the Middles East will join us in these efforts.
