Research

Scientific research at the PThU is divided into two research groups. In the Moving identities research programme, we ask about the influence of global processes on the identity formation of people and communities. Our research programme Mediating good life focuses on the question: what is a 'good life'?

  • Religious identity is never static, but always in motion. In the research programme Moving identities we ask about the influence of global processes. Consider the consequences of globalisation, migration and the ecological crisis on the identity formation of people and communities.

  • What is a good life? How does this take shape? And what do theological visions and practices contribute to the discussion about this within church and society? These questions are central to our Mediating Good Life⊕ research programme.
