When societies are drawn into the maelstrom of ever-increasing polarisation without strong forces to oppose this trend, there is a risk of division and even violent confrontation. But there is also a wealth of experience worldwide which can be used to contribute to reducing the drifting apart of societies. At the Forum Frauenkirche Online, we ask where politics and society, culture and religious communities can start to actively counteract social division. How can rifts be overcome and trust rebuilt? And what can be done when dialogue is (apparently) no longer possible?
