The Religion and Diversity Project is officially winding down. In 2019 our website will be archived on the new and dynamic website (currently under construction) for the Canada Research Chair in Religious Diversity and Social Change.  In the meantime we’ll continue to update the Religion and Diversity website, but it will reflect the slower pace of our activities. Thank you for your continuing interest and engagement with our research.

Challenge or opportunity?

Examining religious diversity in Canada and the world.

Our team of 37 researchers from across the globe was looking at these questions and weighing in on religious issues in Canada and abroad from a variety of perspectives including: religion, law, communication, sociology, history, political science, education and philosophy. If you want to challenge the way you think, keep on browsing to find out about exciting events that took place on and off campus, read thought-provoking research findings and learn more about news events. Open your mind and be daring.

Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs

Le Berkley Center at Georgetown University a été créé au sein du bureau de John J. DeGioia, Président de Georgetown, en mars 2006. Le centre a été conçu afin de miser sur les forces de Georgetown: l'excellence académique; son emplacement à Washington, DC; sa portée internationale et sa tradition catholique et jésuite d'ouverture aux autres religions et au vaste monde séculier. Le généreux soutien de William R. Berkley, un membre du conseil d'administration de l'université, a permis la croissance rapide du centre.

Research Centres

The Project is happy to provide information about research centres, initiatives and projects across Canada and beyond that are focusing on the examination of religion, diversity, pluralism and society through its “Research Centres” page. Led by our Team Member Pamela Klassen and housed at the University of Toronto, the mandate of the Religion in the Public Sphere initiative is to examine how religion manifests in public spaces, institutions, and interactions, and consider the challenges and possibilities of religious diversity in Toronto and around the globe.
