Religion and Politics in Oslo

ecprlogo150x55The next general conference of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) will take place in Oslo, on 6-9 September 2017. A huge event, for the main organization of political scientists in Europe. At the conference, I will have the honour to convene with Anja Hennig the section on “Religion, Politics, and the Public Sphere: Contesting Liberalism?”  By the way, Anja and I in 2017 will also become co-convenors of the ECPR standing group on ‘Religion and Politics’, after the retirement of Jeff Haynes.


Both the section and the convenorship are a great honour and pleasure as well as a burden: it will not be easy to carry on the standing group after the convenorship of Jeff Haynes, who has created this group from scratch and grown it to its actual size (more than 200 scholars). Of course we look forward to a lot of new programs and ideas to implement. Surely, everything will be a little different. Well, anyway, I hope to see you all in Oslo…
