One program has a regional focus. This program seeks to build the capacity of, and encourage dynamic networking among, moderate Muslim organizations in Southeast Asia. The project establishes support mechanisms to promote communication and alliance building amongst progressive Muslim groups and draws upon well-established resources of Muslim scholars. The project takes place in four countries in the region: Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia and Thailand.
