In this final evaluation of a two year project completed by Search for Common Ground in partnership with Perhimpunan Pengembangan Pesantren dan Masyarakat (P3M) and the Wahid Institute, evaluators found that the project's approach was quite relevant in promoting religious freedom and preventing religious radicalization.  The project targeted empowered mainstream moderate Islam that had been seen as a 'silent majority' and provided a countermeasure against the 'vocal minority' extremists in the country.
