Coming up: Workshop on Religious Pluralism in State Institutions

A- A A+

The ReligioWest research program at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies will offer a workshop on ‘The Formatting of Religions: Religious Accommodation in Prisons and the Military’ on 11 & 12 February.

This event explores the topic of religious pluralism in prisons and the military, with a particular focus on Islam as a newcomer religion to the state-religious relations in Western Europe.  Countries addressed in this workshop include Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium, France and United Kingdom. In addition to academics and emerging young Muslim scholars who have done research on this topic,  the workshop will host active Muslim prison and military chaplains for a “working session”.
