• About Our Work

    Our aim is to bring academic research about religion and belief into constructive conversation with public and policy work.

    Since 2015 this work has concentrated on improving the way in which religion is handled in schools in England.

    Prior to 2015 the work concentrated on raising the level of debate about religion and society and gave rise to a series of public debates held in Westminster and available on this site.

    We carry out original research on religion and belief and provide a platform for research by others.
