Subject area Religious Studies
Edited by Univ.-Prof. Dr Wolfram Reiss and Prof. Dr Ulrike Bechmann Religions and interreligious relations play an increasingly important role in society, in national politics and in many international conflicts. The series aims to address topics that are of current political relevance. It questions common distorted images and prejudices, analyses the discourse on religious topics and provides background information on the history of religion in fields of conflict in European and non-European countries in order to make the breadth of knowledge in religious studies and social sciences on a current topic heard in society and politics. The series serves as a platform for young scholars from various disciplines who intend their research to make a practical contribution to religious discourse on current issues.
