The Institute for Intercultural Study and Research (INESIN) is an institution formed by Mexican Protestant and Catholic Christians to:
Establish a Space of Intercultural and Interreligious Gathering and Dialogue (for Analysis of Daily Life, Family, Religion, Work, and Solidarity); and
Develop Research and Participative Education within Communities, Churches, and General Society (that incorporates a Multicultural, Gender-Sensitive Perspective).
The Ecumenical School for Pastoral Training was developed in response to the indigenous uprising of the Zapatistas and the political and religious confrontation in the highlands of the Chiapas. During restructuring, the Ecumenical School for Pastoral Training was transformed into INESIN. Through its work, INESIN strives to benefit pastoral workers, pastors, lay leaders, women, men, and children of all religious beliefs who are interested in the development and practice of human and theological awareness.
