The Centre fosters collaboration both between theology and other disciplines, and between academia and those who shape public deliberation and policy. Into its discussions it draws scholars of high repute from around the world, as well as public figures of distinction. Through publishing the research it supports, the Centre communicates to academic, church, and wider public audiences.
The work of the Centre responds to a growing awareness that engagement with carefully articulated moral and political theology can contribute richly to the flourishing of institutions and individuals within liberal democracies.
Based at Christ Church, Oxford, the Centre is generously supported by the McDonald Agape Foundation.
