Religious diversity and extremisms

With an increasing migratory flow and the settlement of foreign populations, our cultural background becomes more and more complex. This growing diversity in a problematic economic context creates identity tension in each cultural group leading some to populism and some to extremism. Tensions mainly focus on religion, beliefs and secularity. This strand invites researchers and practitioners with strong concern for religious fact and his impact on diversity acceptance. To what extent does religion (education) play a role in modern society, and in what way does it influence and shape intercultural relations in diverse communities? The development of extremism, religious radicalization will also be discussed. Furthermore, this strand invites researchers and practitioners in the field of countering violent extremism, preventing the radicalization of vulnerable (youth) groups and studying the impact of these trends on both discourse and practice of multiculturalism, immigration and coexistence, on local, regional and global levels.
