Despite a century of increasing and accelerated secularisation, the debate about religion in education is far from over, as shown by such controversies as:
- the wearing of visible religious symbols
- the increasing influence of creationism
- the emphasis on separate religious communities.
In this overall context, apart from change and continuity, societies are in a state of uncertainty, actors negotiate and those in power muddle through.
Since the religious reforms of the sixteenth century, the place of religion in education has always been at the heart of how North Western European and North American societies see their future.
The objective of this multi-disciplinary conference is to reconsider this constantly evolving question, in the above-mentioned geographical area after 1800 - from the period of revolution to the social effects of globalisation nowadays.
The following themes will be privileged:
- national policy-development and implementation; the organisation of educational institutions; school and university administration.
- religion as a reference in education systems, and its place in curricula, practice and behaviour.
