GREASE is producing scores of digital and printed publications. Alongside scholarly work, we are creating practical outputs to engage policymakers, civil society and the media. We are gathering and analysing comparative data on 24 countries around the world.

Delving deep into vital questions concerning state-religion relations, we hope to gain robust insights into religious diversity governance and religiously inspired radicalisation. We are also looking at how different forms of secularism and migration factor into this discussion.

Over the lifetime of our project we plan to generate at least three concept papers, 23 country profiles & reports, 12 reports on radicalisation and resilience, several journal articles, numerous blog articles, two “special issues”, an academic book, a practical handbook, four policy briefs and a comprehensive final report.


Here’s a rough overview of what we’ve produced so far and what’s in the pipeline:

In March we published our first Blog Articles. May saw the release of three Concept Papers outlining the project’s conceptual framework. By year’s end we had e-published 23 Country Profiles and a corresponding set of detailed Country Reports. These reports assess governance of religious diversity in light of historical, economic, cultural and political factors.

During our second year we issued 12 Case Studies on religious radicalisation and resilience. In connection with that we published a practical Handbook on strengthening resilience against violent religious radicalisation. We also produced a Toolkit of socio-political indicators for evaluating how religious diversity is governed in different parts of the world. Using those metrics, we published 24 Country Assessments. Meanwhile, the number of articles in our Global Extremes blog (a joint effort with the the BRaVE project and Open Democracy) grew to over 20.

Routledge has just published our Handbook on the Governance of Religious Diversity.  Our collection of Country Reports was expanded to include Canada. We are now preparing a Comparative Report on state-religion relations in different world regions.

During the first quarter of 2022 (perhaps earlier) we plan to issue four  Policy Briefs linked to our Regional Workshops in Morocco, Malaysia, Bulgaria and the UK. As the project nears its conclusion in September, we will issue a substantial Final Report with key findings which will be delivered to the European Commission and available for public review.

All the above (and much more) will be accessible on this website.
