About this Event

KH. Yahya Cholil Staquf
General Chairman of Indonesia’s Nahdlatul Ulama

Under Pak Yahya’s leadership, the Nahdlatul Ulama is working to systematically recontextualize problematic tenets of Islamic orthodoxy that are too often weaponized to foster religious hatred, supremacy and violence. Among his most recent initiatives is the establishment of the G20 Religion Forum, or “R20” — in conjunction with the Indonesian Presidency of the G20. The R20 seeks to mobilize diverse religious leaders to ensure that religion functions as a genuine and dynamic source of solutions rather than problems in the 21st century. 

The discussion will be followed by a Q&A with our audience.
