The guidebook, built upon the experiences of AMAN Indonesia in Tasikmalaya, Solo, and Malang which involving women ulama from diverse ideological backgrounds, serves as a testament to the effectiveness of RSD. It empowers individuals to create comfortable dialogue spaces, strengthen solidarity, and foster respect, equal opportunity, and prejudice-free conversations. This guidebook represents AMAN Indonesia's commitment to enhancing dialogue skills and promoting a transformative journey through Reflective Structured Dialogue.
