Interdisciplinary Journal for Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society - J-RaT Ausgabe 4
In recent years, the topic of religion in the context of migration has become a major issue in society and politics. Since autumn 2015, the beginning of the so called “migration-crisis” in Europe, also European academic discourse intensifies its research on this highly controversial topic. The 4th issue of the “Interdisciplinary Journal for Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society” discusses diverse occurring phenomena within this area from an interdisciplinary perspective. Experts on religious, political and educational science – from demography and theology as well as representatives from Christianity and Islam – reflect transformation-processes on diaspora communities and subjective religiosities, the discourse on religion and migration in political science and the contribution of theology and religious institutions to the challenges of flight and migration. The contributions offer empirical insights into the plural religious field of Europe, which is being transformed intensively by migration.
