We live in a world of ever-increasing interdependence between nations, but of growing enmity between cultures and religions and social groups. A lack of knowledge about other traditions and beliefs can be the catalyst for antagonism between individuals and groups when forced to live in close proximity. The idea of social cohesion permits us to comprehend the associations between populaces. To be sure, the thought of union makes space for a common character of the host community and migrants inside a typical interaction of regional turn of events and hence appears to react better to the issues engaged with intercultural exchange.
Social cohesion depends on the social capital of people, for example their capacity to cooperate with others to the advantage of society overall. This idea of social capital is not able to, in any case, disregard the political and social structures on which relations are situated in a given society: social, class, gender and race relations, the degree of social insurance, the political framework that characterizes and ensures the extent of rights, pluralism and regard.
With respect to this, Anatolian Heritage Federation aims to promote enduring interfaith and intercultural corporation, tolerance and dialogue by sharing the differences and similarities in cultures in an effort to achieve global peace in the foreseeable future through its member organization Intercultural Dialogue Institute. The Institute aims to eliminate or reduce false stereotypes, prejudices and unjustified fears through direct human communication.
