PARTNERS

In order to implement the founder’s vision and spearhead its work, IPSEC established various relationships with institutions mainly from the USA and EU, which impart similar goals. Currently, IPSEC has one permanent affiliation, three long-term partnerships, and several associations.

Affiliation with Harvard Divinity School

IPSEC is affiliated with Harvard Divinity School as an agency site for its Field Education program. Considering that authentic training for the ministry must include both practical experience and reflection on that experience, the Field Education Program at Harvard Divinity School was built around guided learning experiences that integrate theory and practice to develop professional attitudes. By exploring resources from Eastern and Oriental Christianity, IPSEC provides the students with training on inter-religious understanding and dialogue; religion and diplomacy; nationalism and pan-Orthodoxy in Russia and Eastern Europe; Orthodox Christianity in the Middle East, North Africa, and America; Orthodoxy and the ecumenical movement, and issues of restorative justice and conflict transformation.

Partnerships

IPSEC has established partnerships with three Romanian universities for the purpose of promoting academic and cultural ties, educational and research activities in all areas and disciplines offered at/or via the two institutions, as well as exchange of members and researchers, and student exchanges. IPSEC’s partners include:
• Faculty of Orthodox Theology of “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iasi (download memorandum)
• Faculty of Orthodox Theology of “Babes-Bolyai” University of Cluj-Napoca (download memorandum)
• Athenaeum University of Bucharest, Romania (download memorandum)

Associations

In conducting its work, IPSEC has occasionally joined similar institutions from USA, EU, Middle East, Asia, and the Caribbean region to develop various projects. These associations were driven by the nature of the common event or project, and included:

• World Council of Churches (Geneva, Switzerland),
• Institute for Theology and Peace (Hamburg, Germany),
• Romanian Orthodox Patriarchate (Bucharest, Romania),
• Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch (Damascus, Syria),
• International Ecumenical Peace Convocation (Kingston, Jamaica),

• The Conscience and Liberty Association (Bucharest, Romania),
• Parliament of Romania (Bucharest, Romania),
