Organization The Woolf Institute
History Established in Cambridge (UK) in 1998, with close links to the city's famous University. The Institute is named in honour of Lord Harry Woolf, former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales and was founded by Dr Edward Kessler MBE, once described as probably the most prolific figure in interfaith academia.

Values Our work highlights the importance of shared values whilst acknowledging difference in order to further understanding between the communities and enhance the wider public good.
Vision Interdisciplinary through theology, social sciences and ethics for public engagement and understanding.
Mission The purpose of the Woolf Institute is to serve the public good. The Institute studies how relations between Jews, Christians, and Muslims can enhance our understanding of key concepts of public life: community and identity, personal responsibility and social solidarity.
Goals The aim of our work is to connect the multidisciplinary study of relations with broader practical and theoretical questions, including the importance of trust in everyday life, the role of religion in international diplomacy, and improving end of life care in local hospices. We strive, in our research and outreach, to demonstrate how greater understanding of commonality and difference can inform and enhance the wider public good.
Approach As an independent institute working closely with the University of Cambridge, we have the expertise and flexibility necessary to combine theory, research and practice while offering world-class scholarship in a rich learning environment.
