Establishment of the network of European Centers on Religion and Politics
June 16, 2019
Over the past three decades, a significant number of centres for "religion and public life" have emerged in European universities. During the third congress of the European Academy of Religion on March 4 2019, the leaders of some of these centres launched the network of European Centers on Religion and Politics.
This new initiative has two major goals. The first one is to improve communication and to foster inter-disciplinary and comparative approaches on the topic of religion and politics across religious traditions political contexts and historical periods among academic institutions in Europe and beyond. The second one is to be a platform to disseminate research findings and projects in order to create fruitful interactions with media and policy-makers working at the interface of religion and politics.
