The British Council has recently announced the launch of Bridging Voices, a grants program aimed at promoting improved understanding of the role religion plays in public life and international affairs through a series of transatlantic academic and policy dialogues and outreach activities:

Bridging Voices is supported by a $450,000 award from the Henry Luce Foundation to the Friends of the British Council. Five grants, to be managed by the British Council, will be awarded annually to groups of institutions on both sides of the Atlantic. The grants will fund the organisation of two academic and policy dialogues over a period of one year – one in the United States and the other in the United Kingdom or elsewhere in Europe.

Through these dialogues, Bridging Voices will bring together transatlantic academics and policymakers to share their expertise on topics related to religion and international affairs. Participants will use these dialogues to exchange knowledge and develop a more accurate and nuanced understanding of religion and its role in international relations.
