The University of KwaZulu-Natal is pleased to be part of a dynamic partnership of research on religion and development called the International Partnership on Religion and Sustainable Development. This partnership of prolific researchers has launched a new Journal on ‘Religion and Development’ at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. CIHA Blog’s Co-Editor Professor Simangaliso Kumalo represented UKZN as a principal researcher and member of the Editorial board together with colleagues from Universities of Stellenbosch, Pretoria, Humboldt, Western Cape and the Church of Sweden. The purpose of this Journal is to explore the interface between Religion and Development and [its] focus is to understand the work done by religious groups especially African Independent Churches (AIC’s) in shaping development goals and understanding what is happening in the field.
