Banaras Hindu University the first Indian university to join the programme joins 11 other influential global institutions, including Yale and Peking University, which run programmes to equip students with the skills they need to understand religions presence and importance in the modern world, so they become successful leaders and policy makers of the future. The programme will explore issues such as religion and conflict, religion and public life and human rights.

Indias rich and religiously-diverse population, living under its burgeoning democracy, has much to offer the rest of the world.
