Muslim Exchange Program
About the program
The Muslim Exchange program has been successfully operating since 2002.
It involves visits of several weeks duration to Australia by groups of young Indonesian Muslim community leaders (such as writers, bureaucrats, academics, workers in non-governmental organisations and religious bodies), and visits to Indonesia by their Australian counterparts. The aim is to develop greater understanding and recognition of religion and its role in each society. The focus is on building a greater understanding for Australians of the nature of mainstream Islam in Indonesia and, for Indonesians, a greater awareness of Australia's multicultural society.
