Interreligiöser Dialog, Aleviten Österreich Glaubensgemeinde Wien, 06.04.2017

Interreligious dialogue, Alevis Austria, denomination Vienna, April 6th, 2017

To live being human as well as integration and inclusion responsibly whilst maintaining Alevism
constitute the two core aspects of the tasks and actions about which the Federation of Alevi
communities in Austria (Föderation der Aleviten Gemeinden in Österreich, in Turkish: Avusturya
Alevi Birlikleri Federasyonu or AABF) informed the participants of this evening event dedicated to
interreligious dialogue. The idea is that, imbedded in its eventful history, Alevism be revitalised and
the work with youth be encouraged beyond the borders of Vienna in Austria and Turkey. The
textualization, publication and establishment of the Alevi doctrine in teaching and research at
Austrian universities represent important cornerstones on this path. Furthermore, the participants
were informed about the current status and the significance of the recognition as a public
corporation by public law at the newly created Cemevi (meeting place) in Simmering.
The research platform Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society was represented by
Lisa Achathaler.
