Relwar: Religion and Ethics in the Making of War and Peace

The Project on Religion and Ethics in the Making of War and Peace is based at the University of Edinburgh, and works with a network of partners across the world, both within academia and from militaries and humanitarian and peace-building organisations.

The Project is an initiative of New College, the home of the University of Edinburgh’s religious studies, theology and ethics programming, and is closely associated with the Just World Institute, housed within the School of Social and Political Science, and with a range of other centres and schools within the University of Edinburgh. The Project relies on this interdisciplinary environment in its aspiration to treat complex and controversial ethical problems, and to provide rigorous studies on the relationships between military, political and religious dimensions of the making of war and peace today and in the past.
