<p><strong>Abstract:</strong> This article is aimed at introducing Hans Küng's global<br />ethic and its contributions to world peace. Various crises which<br />have hit and are hitting the world motivated Küng to again<br />struggle to bring peace about and to establish a new, better life<br />order. By a global ethic – a basic consensus on binding values, noncancellable<br />criteria, and basic attitudes which are affirmed by all<br />religions, although dogmatically they are different, and

Specifically, Küng's opinion is<br />relevant in an effort to bring peace about in Indonesia, which is<br />very plural. Realizing that threats against peace and plurality in<br />Indonesia often come and result from interreligious conflicts, a<br />dialogue is absolutely necessary. As a concrete form of a global<br />ethic, Küng suggests a critical dialogue. Representatives of the<br />religions in Indonesia need to step forward and sit together in a<br />give-and-take dialogue which introduces the special aspect and<br />main direction of each of the religions. Followers' steadfastness<br />in the principles and seriousness in following the religions are<br />two main keys to a critical dialogue, which can penetrate the<br />foundation of each religion with all of its consequences.</p><p><br /><strong>Keywords:</strong> Peace, Crisis, Global Ethic, Religion, Critical Dialogue</p>
