GREASE Country Reports and Profiles: Religious Diversity Governance
Our Reports and Profiles critically review the way religion and religious diversity are governed in select countries of Europe, Asia and the MENA region. They examine state-religion relations (including secularism), highlight cases of religiously inspired radicalisation, and draw attention to vital forms of resilience.
The coutry reports are part of the Project Radicalisation, Secularism and the Governance of Religion: Bringing together European and Asian Perspectives (GREASE). The ten-partner consortium is looking at how religious diversity is governed in a broad range of cultures, comparing relevant norms, laws and practices. Within this process we are also considering the relative success of various regimes in integrating minorities and migrants. The aim is to deepen our understanding of religious diversity governance, emphasising insights for countering radicalisation trends.
The Country Profiles (6-pagers) provide a basic overview of religious affiliation, religious freedom, state-religion relations and religiously inspired radicalisation in the given country. Our Country Reports address similar subject matter but at greater length, offering more detail and analysis.
New reports shade light on the situation in Belgium, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
