The CSRP was founded in November 2004 by a group of academics attached to the Schools of Divinity, International Relations, Modern Languages, and Philosophical and Anthropological Studies within the University of St Andrews. Mario I. Aguilar, Professor of Religion and Politics, is the current director and CSRP is located within St. Mary's College and the School of Divinity.

The Centre for the Study of Religion and Politics (CSRP) aims to conduct collaborative research in the following areas: the relation of the practice of religion and its political context; theologies as religious narratives focusing on the religious communities that created them in a particular social and political context; the relation between religious and political histories; the relation between theology and history; the history of the Christian Churches in context with emphasis on the study of religion and politics in Latin America, Africa and Asia; the history of world religion and their involvement within particular social and political contexts; and indigenous religious narratives and their influence in contemporary political issues such as indigenous rights, political activism and new religious movements.
