RPP offers programs for Harvard graduate students, the wider Harvard community, and the general public in service of its mission to advance cross-disciplinary engagement, scholarship, and practice on religions and the practice of peace.
Unless we have places where there is dialogue, discussion, and discovery of the norms and relationships that people have, we will not be able to nurture and grow the ethical foundation for a global community.
—Jonathan Granoff, president of the Global Security Institute and special representative of the United Religions Initiative
While the media, policymakers, and academics dedicate a great deal of attention to the role of religion in inciting conflict, it certainly is equally critical for us as scholars to examine how the energies and ethics of religion inspire efforts for peace and what can be learned from these efforts.
—Dean David N. Hempton of Harvard Divinity School
