PLURIEL is the University Platform for Research on Islam in Europe and Lebanon. It has been initiated by the Federation of the Catholic Universities in Europe and Lebanon (FUCE) in 2014 and is now supported by the International Federation of Catholic Universities.

It aims to promote the link between researchers on Islam and the Muslim-Christian dialogue, in connection with Eastern Christians, and to foster the interaction between academics, social actors and economic organisations.

The aim is also to open up research fields on Islam and to develop methodological tools to avoid cultural misunderstandings.

PLURIEL links 15 groups and 150 researchers across Europe, the Mediterranean, and North America.
