  • Research

    In the past two decades, European public domain is overwhelmed with debates around the place of religion in the public sphere. The existing fast-changing plurality of contemporary European societies makes these debates to be a difficult task. Liberty, equality and nondiscrimination paradigms are increasingly challenged by growing diversity and attention to religious freedom in national and international political arena. The duty to accommodate European diversity and promote intercultural dialogue require the EU member states to devote greater considerations to how this issue is dealt with in law and politics.

    This project aims at the reinterpretation of political and legal discourses concerning human rights to freedom of religion seen in a European contemporary history perspective on liberty, equality and nondiscrimination. The project sets out to combine political and legal analyses of religious freedom in Europe in the following three dimensions: expression and association with special focus on religious education, i.e. taking in perspective the degree to which faith-based communities have the right to express religious views in education and to participate in establishing state-recognized religious education institutions. The analysis of religious freedom and religious education in the context of multicultural society(ies) takes Germany, France and the Netherlands as case studies. However, the theoretical framework of the research, i.e. freedom of religion and religious education through European perspective on liberty, equality and nondiscrimination paradigm, could be applicable to other case studies as well. The same, in the ideal case, is true for the provisional results of the analysis.
