About the European Academy of Religion and its activities:

Religion plays a central role in our world. Shared knowledge and academic reflection can stimulate a peaceful coexistence and avoid religious illiteracy.

Both in the academic world and in Europe as a whole, there is a basis of a shared understanding of the importance of religious pluralism, religious

freedom, ecumenical dialogue, and of the role of religions and of religious studies in order to build peace and citizenship in the global world.

The European Academy of Religion (EuARe) is a research initiative launched under the high patronage of the European Parliament which offers an exchange platform to academies and scientific societies; associations; research centers and institutions; university labs, clusters, and departments; journals, publishers, media and scholars coming from Europe and the surrounding regions.

EuARe is an inclusive network of networks which is committed to:

  • giving voice to religious anthropology, archeology, arts, conflicts, cults, doctrines, exegesis, experiences, history, institutions, laws, philology,  philosophy, psychology, theologies, texts, and all the disciplines with an academic status in the universities or research centers, with their own distinctive and specific epistemological traditions;

  • promoting academic and interdisciplinary exchange, fostering mutual respect between individuals and communities of diverse religion or belief;

  • providing an open space to those who work in the production and/or dissemination of knowledge in and of the religious field;

  • being an instrument to make visible the academic institutions and centers of a very large and diverse set of disciplines to the public opinion and decision makers through a public, open-access web platform and an annual convention;

  • adopting an inclusive approach and encourage disciplinary and interdisciplinary research in the perspective of open research, cultural diplomacy, dialogue among thinkers, peaceful relationships among cultural systems, and intellectual international cooperation;

  • offering a forum for the exchange of information between academics and decision makers in order to create understanding in the public domain concerning developments which contain religious aspects or motivations;

  • encouraging stakeholders in Europe in addressing the post-secular resurgence of the role of religion in the public sphere;

  • contributing to the construction of society and formation of culture.
