Belief in Dialogue

This publication has been produced by the Scottish Government and provides guidance on building good relations among and between religious and belief communities and individuals. The guide provides practical examples for developing interaction and dialogue and it is hoped that it will be useful to all kinds of faith and belief groups, inter faith groups, local authorities, statutory and voluntary bodies - in fact anyone interested in dismantling barriers that keep people from understanding and respecting one another.
