Summary
Article summary: 

The Christian-Muslim Dialogue Group from Austria visited Egypt with the desire to

discover a new context for Muslim-Christian relations that might inspire their own practice of Christian-Muslim dialogue in

Europe. The group experienced dialogue at very different levels, from religious leaders and prominent intellectuals to the

grassroots in a village in Banī Suwayf [see art. 22 and 23 in this issue]. They learnt how crucial it is for Muslim-

Christian relations to build positive personal relationships. The Austrians were impressed by the deep and genuine

friendships between Muslims and Copts and their shared commitment to social work. They came to the conclusion that the real

gaps in Egyptian society are much more along the borders of social class than of religion. They found the Egyptian experience

allowing different religious identities highly relevant for the discourse regarding the integration of migrants, who came

to Europe in the past four decades.
