Tasks of the institute
The Johann-Adam-Möhler-Institute for Ecumenism is a teaching and research institute that at the same time is engaged in ecumenical dialogue. Academically it is assigned to the Theological Faculty of Paderborn (the leading director is at the same time Professor at the Faculty) but it has its own management and administration. Beyond that, the institute is active in ecumenical practice and frequently gives assistance and support in ecumenical efforts on the local level. The scientific work is accomplished by a scientific team and supported by a scientific advisory committee.
