Negotiating Religion

28 September 2016



We are pleased to announce the publication of 'Negotiating Religion: Cross-Disciplinary Perspectives'. Edited by prominent UCL scholars Francois Guesnet, Cecile Laborde and Lois Lee, the volume is the outcome of a multi-year interdisciplinary project at UCL, hosted by the UCL European Institute.

Negotiating religious diversity, as well as negotiating different forms and degrees of commitment to religious belief and identity, constitutes a major challenge for all societies. Recent developments such as the 'de-secularisation' of the world, the transformation and globalisation of religion and the attacks of September 11 have made religious claims and religious actors much more visible in the public sphere. This volume provides multiple perspectives on the processes through which religious communities create or defend their place in a given society, both in history and in our world today.
