New Project: Pentecostal Migrants in Secular Sweden, Influences and Challenges

2018-11-21

The project Pentecostal Migrants in Secular Sweden, Influences and Challenges led by Emir Mahieddin was granted funding from the Swedish Science Council in early November.

This multidisciplinary project will start in 2019 and be hosted by CRS. The project team includes researchers from disciplines including law, anthropology, theology, ecclesiology, worldviews studies and sociology of religion who together aim through the project to  fill a gap in our knowledge regarding the role that Pentecostalism plays when religious immigrant minorities interact with the Swedish secular society. Focusing on Pentecostal migrants, whose number is growing in urban settings, the overall goal is to understand better the historical, religious, social, moral and legal transformations in Swedish society in relation to the integration of religious immigrant minorities.
