Resources on Faith, Ethics and Public Life

British Council

The British Council is the United Kingdom’s international organization for cultural relations and educational opportunities. One of the council's major initiatives is Bridging Voices, which supports transatlantic academic and policy dialogues on issues relating to religion and international affairs; it is funded through an award from the Henry Luce Foundation to the Friends of the British Council. Bridging Voices awards five grants annually to groups of institutions on both sides of the Atlantic to fund two academic and policy dialogues over a period of one year—one in the United States and the other in the United Kingdom. In 2015, Sussex University and the Center for Civil and Human Rights at the University of Notre Dame were awarded a Bridging Voices grant for a series of two dialogues, the first of which took place in February 2015 at Wilton Park and the second of which takes place in partnership with the Berkley Center's Religious Freedom Project.
