Some of the Priorities of The Religious Diversity Centre according to its Strategic Plan are that the organisation is committed:

  • to commission critical research work pertaining to religious diversity in the context of an increasingly diverse Aotearoa New Zealand population demographic
  • to be nationally proactive in providing educational events and resources reinforcing the positive value of religious diversity.

The Statement on Religious Diversity (3rd edition, 2019) was developed by the New Zealand Human Rights Commission and the Religious Studies Programme, Victoria University of Wellington. Professor Paul Morris, a trustee of The Religious Diversity Centre, wrote the text. He was advised by Race Relations Commissioners Joris de Bres and Susan Devoy, with the help of Rohan Jaduram and Rakesh Naidoo.
