ICO is also a place of influence. Committed to the present and the future of the Christians of the East in their ancestral lands, it places university knowledge at the disposal of those who make decisions in various fields: political, economic, cultural, diplomatic, ecclesial or other. All of this, in a citizen and pluralist perspective of dialogue and peace.
Finally, ICO is a multi-disciplinary institute that seeks to study the question of Eastern Christians from different angles, with the aim of obtaining a clearer understanding of it.
IFCU is initiating a collaboration with ICO and already invites its member universities who would like to collaborate with ICO to contact the Institute directly: http://institutchretiensdorient.com/
