    Seminar: Countering Fundamentalism: Perspectives from Buddhism and Other Religions



    Religious Fundamentalism is neither a 20th century phenomenon nor is it confined to a specific religion. It has arguably been present in some form for centuries. However, what differs in the 21st century is the pervasive exploitation of social media and technology to spread extremist interpretations and ideologies to vulnerable groups. Join the Buddhist College of Singapore (BCS) and the Studies in Inter-Religious Relations in Plural Societies Programme (SRP) of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (Nanyang Technological University) as we examine potential counter-measures to the rise of fundamentalism through the lens of some of Singapore’s mainstream religions.
