Pluralism Knowledge Programme
The basic objective of PKP is to map and generate knowledge that will enhance the understanding of the idea of pluralism in relation to changing notions of identity, social prejudice and intolerance of faiths other than one’s own. The programme therefore addresses, both directly and indirectly, core concerns of democracy and development, including rethinking both these categories. The programme works towards developing understanding and strategies, including strategies for grassroots level social action, with a view to increase spaces for cultural pluralism and social diversity in practice.
