The Religious Lives of Migrant Minorities

The SSRC Migration Program is sponsoring research to investigate the family, community, and national lives of Christian (Pentecostal), Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist migrants in London, Johannesburg, and Kuala Lumpur. The plan is to produce edited volumes about the religious lives of migrant minorities in each of city and a fourth volume on the themes common to the three sites. This project marks the first attempt by social scientists to compare internationally the role of world religions in the adaptation of migrants to different national contexts.
