AHRC Research Network: Philosophy and Religious Practices

The CFPP in collaboration with the University of Liverpool and Liverpool Hope University successfully bid for a research network grant that will explore and put into practice ways in which philosophy of religion can impact on religious communities, as well as ways in which religious communities can impact on philosophy of religion.

There will also be a strand within the network exploring how philosophical ideas also interact with the wider public world, including current government policy. The network started in 2013 and finished in 2014.

CFPP's specific contribution was to host a conference on the theme of Buddhism and Wellbeing (June 2013) and an international conference on the theme of Philosophy, Religion and the Public Sphere in April 2014. For more information see the Philosophy and Religious Practices Research Network website. For futher background information you can refer to the case report.
