PhD research

MPhil / PhD Heythrop College, University of London: to develop a theological approach to religious diversity in the public sphere. The research begins by examining attempts to create space for cultural and religious diversity in the public sphere within the field of political philosophy (e.g. John Rawls and Seyla Benhabib); the particular challenge of Islam in the European (mainly British) context will then be examined to generate the questions which a theology of religious diversity in the public sphere will need to address. In dialogue with both Islamic and secular thought the goal of the research will be to offer a Christian theological contribution to the contemporary debate.
