Religion is until today an important aspect of the Middle East's social fabric. All too often, the religious and cofessional diversity of the region is being instrumentalized for political gains while disregarding growing societal cleavages as a consequence of these policies. How does the Christian minority maneuvering in such an environment? How does it engage politically, which political perspectives are given and what migration ternds can be observed? These topics will be discussed by and with Dr. Mitri Raheb, lutheran pastor from Bethlehm and one of the most renowned Palestinian theologist who engages since decades for dialogue and exchange. Further speakers are Marc frings, director of the KAS office Palestinian Territories and Dr. Otmar Oehring, coordinator for international religious dialogue of the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation.
