ReligioWest

ReligioWest studies how different western states in Europe and North America are redefining their relationship with religions under the challenge  of increasing religious activism in the public sphere due to new religious movements and Islam.

Although each country starts from very different and specific contexts of the relationship between state, religion and public sphere, this move seems to lead to a more uniform perception of what the relationship should be.

ReligioWest carries out research, produces publications and fosters debate on the following research issues:

  • Rethinking the concept of religious freedom
  • The intellectual independence of justice
  • Freedom of religion
