Research and publishing are a main focus of activity at the CSRS. Through our fellowship programs, we sponsor individual research by scholars from all disciplines and all parts of the world. Through our sponsored-research networks, we create strong teams of investigators to collaboratively measure, test and expand our understanding of the role of religion in society.

CSRS book projects
The centre's signature research model involves the formation of interdisciplinary teams from the sciences, social sciences, humanities, law, fine arts and other disciplines. Each team is tasked with producing a collectively authored academic volume for use by students, researchers and the general public. View CSRS research publications.

- influence government policy
- influence professional practice
- provide teaching material for college and university classrooms
- train and mentor students
- build community
- promote informed dialogue about religion
