Centre for Religion, Conflict and the Public Domain

Centre for Religion, Conflict and the Public Domain

The Centre for 'Religion, Conflict and the Public Domain' explores, from various perspectives, the contentious role of religion in the public sphere in contemporary Western and global society. Combining theoretical and methodological approaches from history, philosophy, law, religious studies, theology and social and political science, the Centre engages in research that is particularly focused on the intersection of religion with Western culture, politics and society. Moving beyond secularist assumptions concerning the irrelevance of religion to the West, the Centre aims to provide critical, self-reflective insight regarding the role religion has played and continues to play in social, political, philosophical and legal contexts.
