Between 2005 and 2010 the Religions and Development Research Programme Consortium undertook a series of comparative research projects that addressed the following questions:
- How do religious values and beliefs drive the actions and interactions of individuals and faith-based organisations?
- How do religious values and beliefs and religious organisations influence the relationships between states and societies?
- In what ways do faith communities interact with development actors and what are the outcomes with respect to the achievement of development goals?
The research is providing knowledge and tools to enable dialogue between development partners and contribute to the achievement of development goals. Outputs from the research, including working papers and policy briefs, are currently being finalised.
