About the group

The Religion and Politics (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.
