Interfaith Lab


What We Do

The International Lab for Research and Leadership in Interfaith Collaboration and Coexistence, under the leadership of TC’s professor, scholar, and award-winning author, Dr. Amra Sabic-El-Rayess, serves as a center of excellence for research, leadership, and training, amplifying protective factors against all forms of hate based on one's religion, race, and ethnicity globally. 

The Lab’s research focuses on interfaith, interracial, and interethnic dialogues across the globe. To sustain and expand global efforts to lessen hate and build stronger interfaith efforts to counter extremism, one of the Lab's main goals is to promote and expand interfaith and cross-cultural collaboration and coexistence.
