I believe that deep-rooted conflicts create wounds that require healing on a spiritual plane. As we look around the conflict-ridden world in which we live, the importance of spiritual care seems plain for all to see – yet in Western societies we often overlook the spiritual realm. The IASC brings together academics and practitioners from around the world to pool our resources and learn from each other.

Dealing with the challenges of forced migration on the one hand and of a general societal pluralization on the other hand, research on, exchange about, and developing models of spiritual care are coming to the fore. IASC accepts the challenge and provides an international, intercultural, and interreligious platform to reflect on and to generate appropriate offers. All will benefit.
