What is the impact of religion on democratization, development and conflict in the South?

This interdisciplinary research programme maps and explores the interconnected process of religious resurgence and political development in the South. By examining diverse religious traditions in politics and contemporary conflict across a number of states and societies, the programme attempts to establish a theoretical framework for understanding the force of religion in the developing world.
