Religion, Conflict and Dialogue

Religions are a global challenge and play a significant role in the recent global developments. Religions are a part of the world's problem but they are also a part of the solution.

New multidisciplinary research unit at the University of Helsinki provides in-depth research on the role of religions in conflicts and their resolution. Special emphasis is placed on gender, which is often neglected in the study of peace, conflict and religions. The unit builds on the long-standing reputation of Finland and the other Nordic countries in international conflict resolution and is placed at the Faculty of Theology.

The unit is expanding and the Faculty of Theology is looking for new partners and donors to join the unit. Think, and join us!
