Event details
Details The global resurgence of religion in the public sphere is not a new phenomenon. But in Europe it has recently occasioned particularly strong controversy, for example through the French Catholic Church's opposition to same-sex marriage, contestation over the the legal status of religious circumcision in Germany, and ongoing disputes surrounding the status of Muslim minorities. In these cases and others, the boundaries between the private and the public spheres, between religion and politics, are shifting and blurring in Europe.

The familiar discourse of secularism and church-state separation seems to have lost much of its normative power. This panel discussion, featuring the Berkley Center's Jose Casanova and Michael Minkenberg and Anja Henning from the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder), will address the current situation and Europe and how it compares with the US experience.
