Studying difference to make a difference

The Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations is a unique centre of study across the ages. We are a community of scholars, archivists, librarians, students, and activists. The Institute is based on the life work of the Reverend Dr James Parkes (1896-1981), one of the most remarkable figures within twentieth century Christianity. Ordained by the Church of England in 1926, through his work with the International Student Service and the Student Christian Movement as early as the 1920s he campaigned against the rise of racist nationalism in Europe.
