Centre of Excellence in Reason and Religious Recognition Research

Project Details

Description

Multicultural societies need toleration in order to flourish. They also need processes of mutual recognition among various groups and stakeholders to avoid segregation and to develop positive group identities. What is the role of religious convictions in the process of mutual recognition? Do religious identities promote or rather prevent the construction of cooperative and responsible societies?

The Centre of Excellence in Reason and Religious Recognition Research aims to discover historical patterns and elaborate systematic models of rational recognition and mutual tolerance in religious world-views.

The research results will be of particular benefit in discussion processes and conflict resolution situations between religious but also between religion and society. In addition, the project will seek to gain a better understanding of the treatment of different minorities (ethnic, sexual, religious).
