The Chair has been founded with full recognition of the plurality and diversity of Islam itself. The Chair will conduct leading-edge, internationally competitive research, assist in developing academic programs, and work towards promoting greater mutual understanding between Muslims and Catholics both in Australia and throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
The Chair is a partnership with the Australian Intercultural Society, a non-government organisation aimed at promoting greater dialogue between Australia’s various faith communities.
