Politics of Faith - New research programme at CMI
To mark CMIs 75 year anniversary, CMI invited researchers to submit research proposals for a new, innovative research programme which would widen the present focus and add a new dimension to CMI research.
Politics of Faith will:
- Focus on how religion and politics interrelate in the South
- Adopt an interdisciplinary approach to the study of religion and politics
The programme will investigate how religion impacts on and is related to contemporary processes within the spheres of
(b) political institutionalization
(c) armed conflict and peacebuilding.
The CMI hosts institutional programmes within each of these three areas: 'Courts in Transition', 'Political Institutions in Africa', and 'Peacebuilding'
In August CMI will advertise the director position as well as a post-doc fellowship as part of this new research programme. Politics of Faith will have a 5 year framework.
