The Institute for the Study of Secularism in Society and Culture (ISSSC) was established to advance understanding of the role of secular values and the process of secularization in contemporary society and culture. Nonpartisan and multidisciplinary, the Institute conducts academic research, sponsors curriculum development, and presents public events.

ISSSC has a global research agenda and aims to develop strong international links. In the teaching sphere innovative courses are being developed on secularism and secularization at both undergraduate and graduate levels, including curricula, bibliographies and syllabi. The Institute serves as a forum for civic education and debate through lectures, seminars and conferences.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
