Crossing the Divide

About The Show

In the midst of some of the world's most intense religious, political and cultural conflicts, there are individuals who've managed to forge connections between opposing sides. It isn’t always easy. The personal costs can be enormous and the odds of success are far from certain, but for some, accepting things as they are just isn't an option. Through our Crossing the Divide series, Freethink explores timely, familiar conflicts and debates from the vantage point of people pioneering new ways to connect with people on opposing sides of the conflict.
