Irish School of Ecumenics
The Irish School of Ecumenics is a multi-disciplinary, all-Ireland graduate school within Trinity College Dublin committed to research at the intersection of theology and religions, politics and social research. Ecumenics in its root-meaning refers to the whole inhabited earth. Thus as defined by the ISE, ecumenics is a multi-disciplinary field of study concerned with dialogue, peace and reconciliation. It has three strands:
• intra-Christian (inter-denominational);
• inter-religious; and
• international peace and reconciliation.
Through its research, teaching and outreach the School promotes dialogue between religions, and works for peace and justice globally. In the pursuit of this mission the ISE has developed appropriate relationships with academic institutes, religious organisations, Churches and other civil society organisations committed to reconciliation, dialogue and peace in Ireland and abroad. The School has campuses in Dublin and in Belfast. Our cross-border identity means that we place a particular emphasis on contextualising our contribution to society in both the Republic of Ireland and in Northern Ireland. One way in which this is achieved is through our extensive adult education programme in N I and the border counties of the Republic.
