Institute for Theology and Politics

About the institute

The Institute for Theology and Politics was ultimately founded with the primary goal of developing a contextual theology in the Balkans, i.e., in the area of the former Yugoslavia, which is mainly based on political and liberation theologies.

Our mission

In that sense, primary Institute’s vision is to create a theological framework in which this interweaving of (ethno)nationalism and religion can be adequately and professionally tackled on a theoretical and practical level.
Additional Institut’s task is to create a network of Academies for Theology and Politics through partnerships worldwide.

Areas of activity

The institute’s areas of activity are education, science and research, democratic political culture, religion and spirituality, human rights, and international cooperation.
The target groups of the institute are academic communities, educational institutions, and citizens.

ITP’s Academy 2023 Reviews

Every beginning is risky, especially regarding this type of discourse that the Academy demands.
However, it turned out that it prevailed over any challenge!
The lecturers proved to be brilliant, and the participants excellent, which means the experiment was successful, and we are moving forward!
Thank you, dear people, for making this event beautiful, productive, and meaningful. Also, thanks to our partners, Forum Civil Peace Service – Serbia, Brot für die Welt, Kirchen Helfen Kirchen Program, Evangelische Kirche in Deutschland, the University Center for Protestant Theology Matthias Flacius Illyricus, NDNV, Tomislav Fiket and club Azimut because without you, this would not have been possible.

Until next Academy, best regards.
