The purpose of the Woolf Institute is to serve the public good. The Institute studies how relations between Jews, Christians, and Muslims can enhance our understanding of key concepts of public life. Combining theology with the social sciences and the humanities, the Woolf Institute seeks to strengthen the ethical framework that is needed for our political, economic and social life. The Institute consists of The Centre for the Study of Jewish-Christian Relations, The Centre for the Study of Muslim-Jewish Relations and The Centre for Public Education. Through these three centres we conduct research and offer a range of teaching programmes.
