Institute for Studies in Global Prosperity

The Institute for Studies in Global Prosperity is dedicated to building capacity in individuals, groups and institutions to contribute to prevalent discourses concerned with the betterment of society within a conceptual framework that draws on both science and religion as two complementary systems of knowledge and practice. The Institute does this by creating learning environments in which participants can come together to study, reflect and consult. It further explores principles, concepts, and approaches that are relevant to the advancement of civilization, and facilitates the generation and systematization of knowledge that is instrumental to effecting positive transformation in society.

Founded in 1999—and working in collaboration with the Bahá’í International Community—the Institute also engages in learning about the methods, approaches and instruments which can best be employed to contribute to the discourses of society.  The Institute is under the auspices of the Universal House of Justice.
