The KAICIID Dialogue Centre (King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue) was founded by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Austria and Spain to enable, empower and encourage dialogue among followers of different religions and cultures around the world. Located in Vienna, the Centre is an independent, autonomous, international organisation, free of political or economic influence. The Board of Directors comprises high-level representatives of the major world religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism) and cultures. An Advisory Forum of up to 100 members of other religions, cultural institutions and international organisations provides a further resource of interreligious and intercultural perspective. The Centre's mission is facilitating interreligious and intercultural dialogue and understanding, to enhance cooperation, respect for diversity, justice and peace. Strategic objectives are to generate, develop and disseminate knowledge in the area of Interreligious and Intercultural dialogue; cultivate and promote respect for differences through dialogue; create bridges, address conflict and promote collaboration amongst diverse groups.
