Volume 10: Interreligious Dialogue:
From Religion to Geopolitics
Forthcoming 2019

Edited by:

The topic of interreligious dialogue is of critical importance at a
time of increasing geopolitical tension.  The urgency for developing
better analytical tools for understanding interreligious dialogue is
underscored by widespread concerns about religion and violence, and
the security culture that this has given rise to in a number of nation
states.  Furthermore, globalization, technological developments, mass
migration, and recent political upheavals and the narratives of
the exclusion that has been associated with them, highlights the need for
greater levels of communication between religious groups.  This volume
seeks to investigate interreligious dialogue as a necessary component
of global affairs in post-secular times, and in multi-faith societies
facing increasing levels of cultural pluralism.

To explore these issues we propose to include articles on the
following themes, from the perspective of a range of different
religions:

  1. Changing viewpoints and theories in the study of interreligious dialogue
  2. Interreligious dialogue and politics in the context of globalization
  3. Interreligious dialogue and debates about secularism and post-secularism
  4. Interreligious dialogue in the context of social diversity,
    cultural pluralism, and multi-faith societies
  5. Interreligious dialogue and emerging information technologies
  6. Interreligious dialogue in an age of terrorism
  7. Interreligious dialogue and migration
