Dr. Khazeh Fananapazir has been engaged in interfaith dialogue since the 1970s, an interest that increased commensurately with the rise of various fundamentalist groups in the ‘70s and ‘80s, especially after 9/11. His research focuses on two pivotal questions:
(1) Is there any way out of the impasses and misunderstandings between faiths and communities?
(2) How can various faith groups work together to achieve unity?
Khazeh believes that there is a way out, and a hundred years ago that way was delineated by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.
