About the group

The RelPol initiative asserts that in our increasingly globalised world the domains of religion and politics are mutually constitutive and shape each other in ever-novel ways. The outcomes are unpredictable and sometimes violent. RelPol focuses on the interface of religion and politics, and brings the humanities to the fore in a field of great social concern. The research initiative combines a range of methodological and theoretical approaches and contextually grounded knowledge to shed new light on acute and complex religio-political issues.
