Sponsors: University of Edinburgh

THE Just Festival is pleased to enjoy creative links with academic bodies, as well as with community, faith and civic ones throughout Scotland and beyond.

The University of Edinburgh and its constituent parts have given strong support over the years.

In particular we have appreciated engagement with the Alwaleed Bin Talal Centre for the Study of Islam in the Contemporary World, which seeks to promote a deeper understanding of Muslim beliefs, cultures and practices.

Also very much valued are our links with the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH), which was established in 1969 to promote interdisciplinary research in the humanities and social sciences within the university, and the Centre for Theology and Public Issues (CTPI).

CTPI promotes reflection and research on important public issues to which Christian theology can make a constructive contribution. Founded in 1984 as the world's first centre for research on public theology, CTPI is a unique meeting place for theologians, social scientists, church leaders, policy makers and the public.
