The Changing Role of Religion in Societies Emerging from Covid-19
Funders Involved: AHRC; NCN; DFG; SSHRC; FRQSC
This project compares the changing role of majority and minority religions in ‘global north’ contexts: Canada, Germany, Ireland/Northern Ireland (UK), and Poland. The project will draw conclusions about factors that affect how religious actors frame issues of health, illness and science, how relationships between religion and the state have been transformed in the context of the pandemic, and whether or how religious adaptations to the digital world have taken account of inclusion and other ethical issues.
