Islamic-theological studies with a focus on “Islam and society” (Fribourg)

The Swiss Centre “Islam and Society” runs a doctoral programme “Islam and Society: Islamic-theological studies” designed to study specific, multidisciplinary themes and to support doctoral students in research projects related to Islamic studies and society in the Swiss context.

Multidisciplinary approach

It is a research and training programme with both specific and transversal themes. It is aimed at doctoral students with a research project promoting topics related to Islamic-theological studies and society. The project is distinguished by its focus on systematic (anthropology, contextual interpretations of Islam, social ethics) and practical (social work, chaplaincy, religious pedagogy) perspectives.
