Representatives of the Doha International Center for Interfaith Dialogue (DICID) visited the Angelicum on Friday December 16, 2011 regarding future collaboration between their institute in Qatar and the Angelicum. The representatives attended the "Interdisciplinary Conference on Sharing Sacred Space: Legal, Theological, and Sociological Perspectives," co-organized by the Interdisciplinary Program in Law and Religion, Columbus School of Law, The Catholic University of America, United States; International Center for Law and Religion Studies, Brigham Young University, J. Reuben Clark Law School, United States; and The John Paul II Center for Interreligious Dialogue (of the Faculty of Theology) that was held at the Angelicum Dec. 14-15, 2011.
DICID was established as a result of a recommendation of the Fifth Doha Interfaith Conference on May 2007 in Doha, Qatar. The center was opened officially in May 2008. The main role of the centre will primarily be to spread the culture of dialogue, the peaceful coexistence of humanity and the acceptance of others.
