An International Handbook of Good Practices for Building Resilience Against Violent Religious Radicalisation Explore More
What can Europe learn from other parts of the world about governing religious diversity? The GREASE project has been finding out. Our consortium brought together researchers and eminent scholars from Europe, South & Southeast Asia, Asia Pacific and the MENA region. Together we spent four years investigating how religious diversity is governed in over two dozen countries. Comparing norms, laws and practices, we tried to ascertain what is useful (or not useful) in preventing religious radicalisation. Our research also shed light on different societal approaches to accommodating religious minorities and migrants.
GREASE succeeded in deepening our understanding of religious diversity governance, emphasizing insights for countering violent radicalisation.
How do different countries deal with religious diversity? How can we help one another counter violent radicalisation while upholding fundamental rights? GREASE explored these questions in six corners of the world, enriching our comparative knowledge base and offering insights for policymaking.
The Read Me section of our website shines a light on GREASE’s central research themes: religious diversity governance, secularism, radicalism, and state-religion relations.
