Welcome to the Understanding Unbelief programme website
Understanding Unbelief is a major new research programme aiming to advance the scientific understanding of atheism and other forms of so-called ‘unbelief’ around the world. Its central research questions concern the nature and diversity of ‘unbelief’.
The Understanding Unbelief programme runs between 2017 and 2019, and is based at the University of Kent. The £2.3m programme is made possible through a grant from the John Templeton Foundation (JTF grant ID#60624), and is a collaboration with St Mary’s University Twickenham, Coventry University, Queens University Belfast and the Nonreligion and Secularity Research Network.
