We are the largest network of higher education institutions researching public theology. We bring together research centers and postgraduate courses from five continents. Interested institutions should contact us.

Welcome to the web presence of the Global Network for Public Theology! As a network with member institutions from all continents, we foster scholarly exchange about the contribution of Christianity to public discourse in such diverse fields as social ethics, environmental ethics, and political ethics. Research within the network focuses on the respective regional, cultural, social, and political contexts in which churches and academic theologians work in their countries and on the bearing these contexts have on theology.
