Asian Network

Children in Sri Lanka welcomed a delegation from Sites of Conscience with a traditional greeting.

“In this part of Asia, our fragile democracies are plagued by waves of violence, instability, and deep-rooted religious and ethnic tensions. We have been able to engage hundreds of thousands of people in promoting peace, tolerance, human rights and democracy.” – Coalition Member, Asia

The mission of the Asian Sites of Conscience Network is to confront growing religious extremism in the region by engaging young people of all faiths in exploring their countries’ histories of repression, ethnic conflict, and violence to find new paths toward tolerance and peace.
