Partners & Projects

Rooted and growing

In order to overcome the tendency that regional research projects on religious plurality are often carried out without mutual consideration, the Plureligion Network brings together different research projects from around the world.

The overall intention is to establish and expand an intensive and fruitful communication between the researchers involved in the local projects. Additionally, researchers from other institutions, exploring the local religious landscapes and regional pluralisation processes, have joined the network.

Co-operation partners

The Plureligion Network has been joined among others by the Pluralism Project at Harvard University (Diane L. Eck & Whittney Barth), the Danish Pluralism Project (Marie Vejrup Nielsen & Marianne Qvortrup Fibiger), the Religions in Finland Project (Kimmo Ketola & Tuomas Martikainen), the Community Religions Project (Kim Knott), and the Religions in Switzerland Project (Martin Baumann).

Moreover, the Center for Religious Studies (CERES) also maintains tight connections with the number one German institution for news and public knowledge transfer in the field of Religious Studies, the Marburg-based Religionswissenschaftlicher Medien- und Informationsdienst e.V. (REMID) (Religious Studies Media and Information Service).
