This research theme explores the (dis)engagement of church and theology from healing urban fractures, with specific reference to the City of Tshwane. Much of the activity is taking place in the Urban Studio, a trans-disciplinary space for action, reflection, dialogue and research, done in partnership with the Tshwane Leadership Foundation.

It has developed four sub-themes:

  • Pathways out of Homelessness
  • Trans-National Migration, Precarious Housing and Faith-Based Responses
  • Religious innovation and Competition amidst Social Change
  • Urban Studio
