Religious diversity in modern and modernising contexts
Intimately associated with the socio-cultural diversification wrought by modern forces and dynamics, religious diversity is an increasingly common feature of contemporary social landscapes in many parts of the world. The practices and processes associated with religious diversity cut across a wide range of themes, topics and issues; not least: human rights, the politics of recognition, governance and resource allocation, tolerance, plurality and assimilation, negotiation, partnerships and competition, and collective identity formation.
Bringing together academics and stakeholders from various parts of the world, this project investigates how the practices and processes of religious diversity are playing out in the modern and modernising contexts of the BRIC nations (i.e. Brazil, Russia, India, and China) as compared and contrasted with the UK.
The project is funded by the International Research Network scheme of the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
