  Add to Calendar 2012-05-31 9:00 2012-06-01 18:00 Europe/Paris Who Owns Religion? Religion Between Populism and Faith-Communities

From Europe to Middle east, populist movements claim religion as an identity, not as a faith. Churches and faith communities conversely tend to put believing before belonging. Social sciences are more at ease with identities than with faith, and may miss something in the debate. The conference will explore the connections and tensions between religions and populism.
