Activity The Cambridge Abraham Project works in public education, with professionals, public services and youth. CIP focuses its energies in two broad areas – academic work and civic work. CIP facilitates high-level research, studentships and conferences. The Cambridge Abraham Project is CIPs output in the civic realm, in partnership with the Coexist Foundation, an organisation which has shared CIPs vision from the outset. Translation work is also central to our vision of opening new possibilities for in-depth study. We aim to build a bridge over the divide caused by different languages.
