Abstract

This article arguess interfaith dialogue can be used to prevent the development of radicalism by including this model to the education system in Indonesia where students can dialogue directly with students of different religions to gain more understanding and comprehensive knowledge about other religions and foster a sense of tolerance and the importance of respecting differences. But this model should be accompanied by a change in the direction of the religious education system from exclusive to inclusive, because the understanding of an exclusive religion will be a trigger for the development of radicalism. Understanding exclusivism makes the lack of understanding students of other religions.
