CRS Partner in Canadian project on non-religion


Professor Lori Beaman at Ottowa University, Canada has received a $2.5 million Partnership Grant to study the social impact of the growing number of people who identify as having no religion. Working with a group of co-investigators and partners from international and other Canadian universities, she is looking at the challenges that non-religion poses to societies experiencing a simultaneous intensification of religious diversity.

Building on Professor Beaman’s previous Religion and Diversity Project, this study aims to advance knowledge about nonreligion that will inform models of living well together in diverse and inclusive societies. CRS will be involved in the Nordic part of the study running workshops during the project and through the involvement of Prof. Mia Lövheim who will supervise the study of nonreligion and media in the project as a whole.
