IPSEC CONSULTING

The twenty-first century ushered mankind into adventurous, exciting, but challenging new horizons. The new power of computation made colossal advances in quantum physics, space exploration, and genetics—just to name a few—while the power of human imagination reached new summits. At the same time, mankind faces existential threats posed by an increased competition over resources, military rivalries, economic imbalance, environmental depletion, demographic growth, terrorism, wars and migration. The changing attitudes of the global scientific community toward religious faith—which incrementally abandoned diatribe and started accepting religion as a partner in the exploration of the unknown—demand new paradigms of communication between science and religion. Last but not least, the resurgence of religion as a global political force steers public policy in ways which can dramatically impact the existing relations between religion and secular governance, as well as between organized religions themselves, while imposing unanticipated restrictions against anything that would run contrary to its interests.

Programs such as the “round table” and “preventive diplomacy” are geared toward the academic world as an effort to anticipate ideological conflicts and prevent them from developing. The “workshops” focus on existing tensions, offering training on “conflict transformation” and on building skills for “interreligious dialogue” to the benefit of communities facing unrest, while “religious diplomacy” training is geared toward Foreign Service officers and transnational business leaders. The “theological consultations” are settings where Orthodox theologians convene and discuss various doctrinal, ecclesiastical, moral, and liturgical issues of theological and educational interest. Last but not least, the “policymaking” program offers consulting services to the policy world in general, which includes government, business and religion.
