The Ecumenical Institute, often know as Bossey Institute, from the name of the region, 15 km outside Geneva, where it is located, has been a centre for ecumenical studies under the auspices of the World Council of Churches, since 1946. Known as an 'ecumenical laboratory', its task is theological formation of Christians from all over the world. In its beautiful and tranquil surroundings it offers a space where Christians from diverse traditions and backgrounds can encounter one another and be challenged and changed. It is also a space where some of the most sensitive and intractable issues facing the churches can be addressed.
