Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme

 

The Cambridge Interfaith Programme has a long history of innovative research and public engagement projects. You can read about a small selection of these at the links below.

 

Religion and the Idea of a Research University

This project promoted deeper religious literacy in Cambridge and beyond by developing more sophisticated ways of thinking about the public purpose of the university, promoting good global citizenship in a complexly religious and secular world, and by examining how insisting upon the secularity of the university can help protect the inclusive nature of academic life, but can also lead to exclusion.

 

Interpreting Interreligious Relations with Wittgenstein

This project explored the relevance of Wittgenstein’s philosophy of religion for present and future research on interreligious relations.

 

A Common Word

CIP was deeply involved in A Common Word, a statement of peace and friendship issued in October 2007 and signed by more than 130 Muslim scholars from all traditions, and addressed to Christian leaders around the world.

 

Effective Community Policing

In partnership with the University of Leeds and the Metropolitan Police Service, this research project showed that neighbourhood policing teams can make a real difference to community cohesion by learning about religion in their local contexts and being aware of the difference it makes to everyday life.
