Academy of World Religions
Establish interreligious dialogue in research and teaching; offer a platform/network for academic issues and dialogue of theologians of world religions in a scientific context.
In the late 1990s, a working group of scientists and representatives of different religious communities came together in Hamburg and developed the vision of a Academy of World Religions. In 2006, the Interdisciplinary Centre for World Religions in Dialogue was founded at the University of Hamburg. In 2010, with the support of the University and the Bureau of the Hamburg Senate, the Academy of World Religions at the University of Hamburg has been established.
