The project aims to conceptualise a multi-faith public theology for the post-migrant society that enables and empowers practitioners from the three Abrahamic faiths to work together for refugees in the public square, demonstrating the impact of faith-based initiatives on pluralist societies in Europe.

Project: Option for the Poor: a Framework of Theological Analysis in Selected Popular Movies

This study is an attempt at underpinning the intersections between Theology and Film. Using the principle of option for the poor as taught in Catholic Theology as a framework of analysis, it unpacks how films theologize on human everydayness by using integrating symbols to reveal Divine moments and messages.
