Research Centre "Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society"

Logo Forschungsplattform Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society

The research centre "Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society", which continues the work of the correspondent research platform, was founded in 2018 and is dedicated to important questions regarding the term and the position of religion and religiousness within societal transformation processes in contemporary Europe and beyond.

The platform is an interdisciplinary research community; its members come from the fields of Catholic and Protestant theology, social sciences, law, cultural studies, philosophy and education.

The common purpose is to achieve a clarification on the interactive coherence of religion and societal transformation processes in contemporary Europe and beyond looking at the many versatile approaches from the different participating research fields.
