The 'War on Terrorism', which was started by the US after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, has had far reaching consequences for interreligious dialogue worldwide. In the eyes of many, the issue of terrorism appeared to be basically a conflict between Muslims and Christians or between Muslims and Jews. Despite these difficulties, new initiatives of interreligious dialogue have been taken. The author gives an overview of these initiatives and focuses also on other conflict areas and the initiatives that have been and are being taken there.
