Activities of the Druze Research and Publications Institute
Research Centers:

With the passage of time and consistent persecution of the people of the Druze religion, the Druze religious literature scattered all over the world. The immediate goal of the research centers is to identify sources and collect literature, and documents relating to the Druze religion, and to obtain every information to identify Druze habitats anywhere in the world. Based on the available information, projects for research and publications are planned. Research centers of the Druze Research and Publications Institute have been established all over the world.

Publications Center:

The Druze Research and Publications Institute will publish information documented by the research centers on Druze religion, history and literature.

Religious Center:

There is a great need to provide a systematic and articulated material for the education of children and young adults of the Druze community to enable them to understand the concept of the Druze religion and its history. Several Druze professionals in the field of education have been identified and they are designing and producing educational literature that will be passed on through the Druze parents for helping their children to understand the Druze religion. Moreover, a program has been designed for training teachers to teach the Druze religion by adopting modern methods of teaching.
