The Faith and Globalisation Programme
is a joint network of the School of Government and International Affairs and the Department of Theology and Religion at Durham University. It is aimed at providing teaching at Masters level and research at world class levels, in an atmosphere of vigorous intellectual exchange and collaborative work.
The Programme launched a taught MA in Faith and Globalisation
in October 2010, runs a series of regular Research Seminars and other events and is involved in international research collaboration.Through these activities the interconnections of faith, spirituality and organised religion and global issues, contexts and dynamics are explored both in terms of scholarship and practical orientations.
The Programme is fully interdisciplinary and involves staff
from various departments across faculties, around areas such as science and technology, economics and finance, identity and culture, governance and politics, through the study of various faith traditions and forms of organised religion around the world.
Durham University is also the leading UK hub of the Faith and Globalisation Initiative, led by the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, and formed by top universities across the world.
