Bahá’í International Community REPRESENTATIVE OFFICES - Jakarta Office
Southeast Asia is today experiencing accelerating integration across spheres ranging from economic, social-cultural, to political security. The Baha'i International Community’s Regional Office in Jakarta offers the insights and experience of the Baha'i Faith(link is external) to help meet the challenges and realize the great promise offered by this growing interdependence.
The Office engages inter-governmental associations such as ASEAN as well as various governmental agencies, civil society organizations and research institutes in the region. It aims to convene gatherings, creating spaces devoted to collective inquiry and meaningful discussion of contemporary issues.
The present work of the Office is built on the long-time presence of the Baha'i Faith in this part of the world, dating back more than a century to the 1870s. Today, Baha'is are present in all Southeast Asian countries and are actively working for the spiritual and social advancement of their neighborhoods and villages.
The Office follows regional discourses in a number of thematic areas, with particular interest in exploring facets of peace and security, such as through the establishment of collaborative relationships between and amongst institutions of governance, civil society, and individual citizens. It warmly welcomes partnership with those working for the harmonious progress of Southeast Asia.
