Bridges between the Jesuit Migrant Service and Jesuit Higher Education Centers for Interreligious Dialogue with Islam

Original title : “Puentes entre el Servicio Jesuita a Migrantes y los centros jesuitas de educación superior para el diálogo interreligioso con el Islam”

In Spain, opportunities for interreligious dialogue with Muslims have grown with the immigration movements, as an important Muslim population has settled and has formed a network of Islamic communities, cultural centers, confessional associations and federative bodies. Hence, the Jesuit Migrant Service is the apostolic field in which the most instances of encounter with Islamic people and institutions have been found, various formulas of interreligious dialogue have been tried and some research has been promoted to learn more about the value of religion in the processes of migration and integration in the destination society, the growing religious diversity in Spanish society, the realization of the fundamental right to religious freedom and the public management of religious diversity.

Reflection, research and teaching on these issues have opened channels of collaboration between the SJM and various University Institutes and Departments of the network of Jesuit centers of higher education in Spain (UNIJES).

Titre original : “Puentes entre el Servicio Jesuita a Migrantes y los centros jesuitas de educación superior para el diálogo interreligioso con el Islam”

En Espagne, les opportunités de dialogue interreligieux avec les musulmans se sont multipliées avec les mouvements d’immigration, car une importante population musulmane s’est installée et a formé un réseau de communautés islamiques, de centres culturels, d’associations confessionnelles et d’organismes fédératifs. Par conséquent, le Service Jésuite des Migrants est le domaine apostolique dans lequel se sont réunis la plupart des rencontres avec des personnes et des institutions islamiques, diverses formules de dialogue interreligieux ont été essayées et des recherches ont été encouragées pour en savoir plus sur la valeur de la religion et les processus de migration et d’intégration dans la société d’accueil, la diversité religieuse croissante dans la société espagnole, la réalisation du droit fondamental à la liberté religieuse et la gestion publique de la diversité religieuse.

La réflexion, la recherche et l’enseignement sur ces questions ont ouvert des voies de collaboration entre le SJM et divers instituts et départements universitaires du réseau des centres jésuites d’enseignement supérieur en Espagne (UNIJES).

En España, las oportunidades de diálogo interreligioso con musulmanes han crecido con los movimientos de inmigración, al haberse asentado una importante población musulmana que ha formado una red de comunidades, centros culturales, asociaciones confesionales y organismos federativos islámicos. De ahí que el Servicio Jesuita a Migrantes sea el ámbito apostólico en el que hayan cuajado más instancias de encuentro con personas e instituciones islámicas, se hayan ensayado fórmulas diversas de diálogo interreligioso y promovido alguna investigación para conocer más a fondo el valor de la religión en los procesos de migración e integración en la sociedad de destino, la diversidad religiosa creciente en la sociedad española, la concreción del derecho fundamental a la libertad religiosa y de la gestión pública de la diversidad religiosa.

La reflexión, investigación y docencia sobre estas cuestiones han abierto canales de colaboración entre el SJM y diversos Institutos Universitarios y Departamentos de la red de centros jesuitas de educación superior en España (UNIJES).
