CFP: “Inter-Religious Relations: Prejudices and Conflicts—Dialogue and Integration”

Call for Submissions to a Special Issue of the Journal Religions

Inter-Religious Relations: Prejudices and Conflicts—Dialogue and

As globalization progresses, religious pluralization proceeds and with it, and awareness of other religious traditions is increasingly penetrating into everyday life. Moreover, with such a heightened awareness of other religions, actors on the micro-, meso-, and macro-level have to position themselves towards this religious plurality, which we want to capture with the term ‘inter-religious relations’. Such inter-religious relations take place at the level between individuals, and at the level of regions, countries, and institutions (especially religious communities). However, inter-religious relations can comprise very different qualities. These include, but are not limited to, prejudices and (resulting) conflicts as well as dialogue and integration of different religious perspectives and practices. The focus of this Special Issue is on qualitative and quantitative empirical studies from all disciplines of empirical religious research. Additionally, theoretical papers or historical case studies on this topic are also invited. Research from all religious and cultural contexts are highly welcome.
