After ten years operating programs as the International Summer School on Religion and Public Life (ISSRPL), we have changed our name to CEDAR–Communities Engaging with Difference and Religion. This better reflects our organizational growth and the needs of our affiliate schools in the Balkans, North America, Eastern Africa and Southern Africa. We have redesigned our practice and programming to better address the opportunities afforded by our global network. Continuing to support the pedagogy developed by the ISSRPL, CEDAR is a global educational network enabling members of disparate communities to recognize and accept their differences as they work toward a civil society.
