Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Pluralism is one of the big challenges modern societies are facing today. This can be seen on a local level in the debates on values (see also burqa ban) and on a global level in the discussion about how to deal with pluralism and in the growing importance of religions in politics and society, leading to mutual influences and tensions.
The seminar gives an introduction into this subject and sensitize for pluralism and its challenges. Lectures (Prof. Linda Hogan) as well as excursions to religious denominations in Austria will help to consolidate the major subjects.

Introduction into the topic of freedom of religion and belief and discussion about the challenges of pluralistic societies.
