The Laudato Si’ Research Institute conducts cutting-edge multidisciplinary research for societal transformation on the most pressing ecological and social issues of our day.
Rooted in theological and philosophical wisdom, it aims to serve higher education, ecclesial communities, and practitioners by fostering dialogue, inspiring innovative research, and promoting change for the common good.
Reconciling intellectual insight and the wisdom of religious traditions to help create a hope-filled future in solidarity with the poor and in care and respect for life on our common home.
We pursue a holistic and integrated research agenda inclusive of all faiths and none that seeks to address the social and ecological challenges facing the global community.
We promote multidisciplinary dialogue while actively encouraging the inclusion of diverse voices from the periphery. Through this dialogue and the co-production of knowledge, we seek to inspire innovative research and through our partnerships to promote positive change for the most vulnerable and for all life on our common home.
By harnessing the intellectual resources of the academy and religious traditions, we aim to provide support for those actively engaged in effecting local and global change.
Through these alliances and partnerships, we seek to bring the concerns of the world’s most vulnerable into the heart of our research leading to new fundamental research and new ways of promoting global change.
