The Irish School of Ecumenics is a department of the School of Religions, Peace Studies and Theology in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences of Trinity College Dublin.

ISE’s teaching and research is centred on understanding conflict and the possibilities for peace, reconciliation and dialogue in many different contexts, including the political, the global, the religious and the local. Our Masters programmes in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation, Intercultural Theology and Interreligious Studies and International Peace Studies attract students from around the world who wish to further their knowledge and careers in these areas. Our evening diploma in Conflict and Dispute Resolution Studies engages students who wish to further these skills in the workplace. Our international cohort of PhD students draws on the supervisory expertise of our staff and benefits from the opportunity to work in the School’s inter-disciplinary environment. Our alumni are working in many diverse settings, including international NGOs, diplomatic corps, public bodies, social entrepreneurship, religious and social leadership and education.

The Irish School of Ecumenics is committed to the study and promotion of dialogue, peace and reconciliation in Ireland and other global contexts.

The M.Phil. courses in Intercultural Theology and Interreligious Studies; in International Peace Studies; and the Postgraduate Diploma in Conflict and Dispute Resolution Studies, are based in Dublin, while the M.Phil. course in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation is based in Belfast. Individual modules address the intersecting fields of theology, ecumenics and world religions, politics, international relations, peace and reconciliation, ethics and social theory. Theoretical and applied research are at the heart of all work undertaken at ISE, where students and staff engage with critical issues currently facing global societies, governments, faith communities and international institutions and NGOs committed to the promotion of peace and reconciliation.
