The Centre for Political Analysis of Babes-Bolyai University would like to invite you to submit a proposal for the international conference, Religion and Politics in the Globalization Era, which will be held June, 22nd-24th 2012 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. This event is jointly hosted and supported by Babes-Bolyai University’s Institute for Global Studies.
The event is aimed at fostering a forum for cross-national and cross-cultural debates on the key aspects that underlie and emerge from the interplay relating religion to various aspects of national and international politics. The list of specific topics as guidelines for papers and discussions include:
Religion and democracy;
Human rights and responsibilities in world religions;
Religion as a source and supporter of global ethics;
Religion: promoting violence or peace?;
Religion’s role in the international system;
Religion and ecology;
The use of religious language for political purposes: religion and electoral campaigns;
Religious beliefs and political parties and movements;
Global poverty and religiously inspired terrorism;
Public theologies and public policies.
While we encourage proposals focusing on the topics listed above, proposals tackling other issues at the intersection of religion and politics will also be considered. Papers may focus on all kinds of religions, “world religions” just as new religious movements or alternative spiritualities.
