Faith & Religion Intro

The Faith & Religion thematic group brings together social scientists and theologians interested in: (1) examining both the positive and negative affects religion, and religion in culture have on human development; and (2) pursuing a dialogue between the various faith communities throughout the world and human development and capabilities.  Through UK-based study days, the annual HDCA conference, emails, and the social network, this group hopes to create discourse, share research, and establish an interdisciplinary network of like minded scholars interested in exploring both these areas of study.
