OUR MISSION:

The Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict at Arizona State University advances multidisciplinary research and education on the religious dynamics of conflict and peace. By fostering exchange ad collaboration, the Center creates networks—local, national, and global—that expand knowledge, deepen understanding, and promote wiser, more effective responses to some of the world's most pressing challenges.

Celebrating 15 years of impact

From the urgent conflicts in the wake of 9/11 to the pressing issues today, the role of religion
in public life—in politics, culture, science, society, and global affairs—is undeniable.


Since our founding in 2003, the Center has been there to anticipate and address these challenges,
seeking solutions in a complex world.

We thank you for your support and invite you to join us as we
continue working to build the better world we all hope for
.
