A proper grasp of the world in the 21st century, with all its possibilities and challenges, requires a knowledge and understanding of religion and the religious.
The Centre for Muslim-Christian Studies, through our Oxford-based academic team, combines critical academic research and analysis with on-the-ground insight from our global network of contributors.
WHAT WE CAN OFFER
The staff at the Centre have considerable experience working with organisations and individuals in an advisory capacity; offering expert opinion and/or professional training.
We have two primary types of advisory service
Whether you are managing a small team or part of a large department; overseeing a single project or many, in today's world you will have to contend with difference. A difference in culture and religion will mean different values, motivations, and ways of working -- this means different management challenges and complex organisational questions. Whether it is training Senior Management or entire organisations, an in-depth knowledge and understanding of religious-cultural dimensions can offer the clarity needed at key organisational or project specific decision points. We can help you respond to the challenges of contending with difference.
An increasingly inter-connected and complex world requires a more rigorous understanding of the different dimensions -- political, economic, historical, and religious -- at work in any given situation. The Centre has staff, research fellows, and a network of associates that can bring academic rigour and first-hand experience to understanding the complexities of how religion relates to and affects questions of foreign/domestic policy, international development and race relations -- to name a few. We have regional expertise in: Africa, South Asia, South East Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the UK.
