Religion and the Public Sphere
Advancing and mobilizing new knowledge about religion, secularism, and public life
Religion has been increasingly acknowledged in recent years as an important aspect of national and international politics, a pervasive and contentious cultural force, and a subject of significant public concern. Through a range of projects, the Council’s Program on Religion and the Public Sphere seeks to foster engagement and cooperation among social scientists and others working on religion, secularism, and related topics, to support new and innovative scholarship in this critical area of study, and to elevate the quality of both academic and public discussion.
