School Research

School Research Graffiti 1Research and scholarship are integral to the activities of each of the three academic units of the Confederal School of Religions, Peace Studies and Theology, with different but inter-related research strengths and thematic priorities within each unit. Staff are actively engaged in individual and collaborative research projects and are committed to research that makes an original contribution to knowledge, that informs public policy and that benefits civil society and religious transformation in Ireland and internationally. The Irish School of Ecumenics is engaged in research on a wide variety of themes related to the core interests of the School in ecumenical theology, intercultural theology and inter-religious studies (especially Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism); peacebuilding, non-violent theory and praxis, conflict resolution and reconciliation. These include topics such as the role of religion in violence and peace, the international politics of human trafficking, geopolitics and identity politics, the Emerging Church Movement, cross-cultural and inter-religious dialogue on God, international intervention in ethnic conflict,theological engagement with religious fundamentalism, and truth, memory and justice in post-conflict societies.
