Bringing together leading researchers from around the world, the Institute for Religion, Politics and Society at Australian Catholic University (ACU) explores the political, sociological, legal and economic dimensions of religion.

Through international collaborations and cross-disciplinary research, the Institute addresses contemporary issues of religion, political conflict and solidarities while also examining contributing factors to happiness and well-being.
