A white paper providing important context for our state-religion governance indicators. Outlines the methodology used to create these indicators and offers comparative insights into the country assessments produced using our indicators toolkit. From our team at CSD who spearheaded the GREASE indicators initiative.
This data-rich paper pulls together the multiple threads of GREASE’s indicators initiative. The authors begin with an overview of previous research on indicators of a similar nature (state-religion governance, religiously inspired radicalisation/violent extremism, etc). They then describe the data and methods used to produce the GREASE indicators, critically review the results and offer suggestions for future research.
