Re-emergence of Religion as a Social Force in Europe?

04 June 10

Venue: The Møller Centre, Cambridge, UK 9:30am to 4:30pm Cost: £68 (including refreshments and lunch)

This conference presents the key findings from Relemerge, an international academic research programme funded by NORFACE. The aim of the programme, which ran from 2007 to 2010, was to probe the current condition of religion in Europe against the background of European secularism and the re-kindling of religious activity brought about by the political and social changes in Europe of the past thirty years. The ten innovative and methodologically varied projects have looked at the significance of religion in contemporary social life and explored the social and cultural impacts of recent religious growth points, such as Pentecostalism and Islam. We invite you to join us for what promises to be a lively debate marking the end of the programme.
