The Indonesian Consortium for Religious Studies (ICRS-Yogya) is a consortium of three universities: Gadjah Mada University (UGM), State Islamic University Sunan Kalijaga (UIN), and Duta Wacana Christian University (UKDW). Together they offer an integrative, international Ph.D. program in inter-religious studies. This is the worldwide unique Religious Studies Ph.D. Program that is co-sponsored by Muslim, Christian, and national-secular universities.

In 2022, Dr Dicky Sofjan, professor at the Indonesian Consortium for Religious Studies (ICRS)Globethics Board Member and Pool of Experts member, was instated as the new Globethics Indonesia Director.
