This Special Issue on “Religion and Politics: New Developments Worldwide” will feature articles dealing with recent developments in the interaction of religion and politics. “Religion” here is broadly understood to encompass not only institutionalized religion(s) but also ethical, ritual or social issues that form a part of the religious milieu. “Politics” is also broadly conceived to encompass not only government structures or political parties but also the social movements that tend to influence, sooner or later, the values that shape government policies.
The referees and guest editor will be looking for articles that focus on something new, meaning some development that has either taken shape fairly recently or has gained new strength recently. Articles may focus on a specific country (e.g., “The Increasing Role of Hindu Nationalism in Indian Politics”), on a region (e.g., “New Trends in the Anti-Immigration Parties in Europe”), or on a worldwide theme (e.g, “The Growing Influence of Evangelical Christianity”).
Contributions of sound scholarship arising from any academic discipline relevant to the Special Issue’s focus are welcome; including but not limited to political science, religious studies, sociology, anthropology, women’s studies, journalism or media studies.
The intent of this Special Issue is to provide readers with articles, based on sound scholarship, that advance the understanding of current developments in Religion and Politics anywhere in the world.
