Religion plays a central role in our world. Shared knowledge and academic reflection can stimulate a peaceful coexistence and avoid religious illiteracy. Both in the academic world and in Europe as a whole, there is a basis of a shared understanding of the importance of religious pluralism, religious freedom, ecumenical dialogue, and of the role of religions and of religious studies in order to build peace and citizenship in the global world.

The European Academy of Religion (EuARe) is a research initiative launched under the high patronage of the European Parliament which offers an exchange platform to scholars, universities, centres, research infrastructures, scientific journals and publishers coming from Europe and the surrounding regions.


Objectives, tasks and powers of the association, as approved by the General Assembly of the EuARe members on June 21, 2017
