On 13 April, the third free online course offered by the University of Groningen will start: Religion and Conflict. Marjo Buitelaar is one of the lecturers. The course will examine issues such as, ‘Is religion an increasingly dominant factor in international conflicts? And if so, why is this the case? Are there other ways of looking at the relationship between religion and conflict?'
Each episode of the weekly online video magazine Unifocus includes an item related to the University of Groningen, in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
