Governing Religion: European Challenges and Asian Approaches (FutureLearn)
Explore the relationship between religions and governments and learn how religions have come to be governed across the world. Explore ways of governing religion and religious diversity today. On this course you will consider different models of state-religion relations, reviewing examples from both European and non-European countries. You will learn how different models have emerged out of historical processes of nation formation (including post-colonial independence, redrawing of state boundaries after a major political transition or through an evolutionary process of institutional and value change).
