On June 17, 2000, the Los Angeles Times published an article by Benjamin J. Hubbard, professor and chair of the Department of Comparative Religion at Cal State Fullerton, on the subject of interfaith dialogue. Hubbard notes the advances of interfaith dialogue in the past few decades, including the establishment of the Academy for Judaic, Christian and Islamic Studies in the 1970s, the Buddhist-Christian dialogues initiated by Professor John Cobb at the Claremont School of Theology, the 1993 World Parliament of Religions, and the first Millennium World Peace Summit to be held this August at the United Nations, where 1000 religious leaders from all faiths will explore ways religion can help diffuse regional conflicts.
