The aim of the programme Religion in modern society is to give an answer to, or to make further analyses of, societal issues concerning religion that play a role in modern Dutch society. Religion is undergoing striking changes. The programme aims to provide a picture of the dynamics of religion and of the directions in which this is moving. Historical and/or international aspects of this dynamicism will be included in this picture.Grant proposals provide an elaboration of one or more of the following three research fields:
- unity and division in the modern religious landscape;
- religious unity and division in modern society;
- dealing with religious unity and division in the public arena.
Within the programme, collaboration with public organisations and/or companies is obligatory. These partner organisations contribute financially or in kind to the projects and actively participate in the realisation of these.
A detailed description of the programme and the research fields can be found in the call for proposals and the programme document (only in Dutch). Information for partner organisations can be found in the brochure (only in Dutch). A definition of the term religion can be found under documentation.
