Our scientific research serves an equitable society and a living church, as well as the advancement of theology. To ensure this, we look at practice with a theory-based approach and develop theories for practice.

In this work we pay special attention to:

  • The reflection of social, political, economic, religious and church practice, informed by pastoral theology and religious pedagogy
  • Research and teaching in the ecumenical context
  • A biographical and life-world-oriented perspective
  • Perception of plurality and diversity (religion, culture, gender, age, "disability") and a just engagement with it
