Research Programme on Religious Communities and Sustainable Development

Welcome to the Research Programme on Religious Communities and Sustainable Development!

About us: The Research Programme on Religious Communities and Sustainable Development is an interdisciplinary hub for excellent research and policy advice...
... in the field of religion and development. It is based at the Faculty of Theology and headed by Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Gräb and Philipp Öhlmann. We seek to actively contribute to finding solutions to the fundamental challenges of our time. We do so with a focus on religious communities in different contexts – investigating their potential to foster development, equality, social cohesion and ecological sustainability, but also analyzing their role as possible sources of exclusion and marginalization – and by continuously intensifying our international collaboration, particularly with our partners in the global South.
