The Centre for Research in Human Flourishing (CRHF) was established in 2015 to study the processes and outcomes of optimal functioning, with particular interests in well-being, human potential, agency and autonomy, character strengths, social behaviour and human systems.
The centre adopts an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the nature of social environments that best nurture development, and how this knowledge can be applied to foster resilience, personal and professional growth, and quality of life.

At the heart of our activities is a humanising and compassionate approach towards identifying, developing and supporting the processes that enable human flourishing.
