Values expressing unity in diversity.: A study of the complex relation between majority cultures and minority religions across Europe.

Abstract [en]

The results from the European Commission sixth Framework Programme project called ‘Welfare and Religion in Europe. Transitions related to Religion, Minorities and Gender’ will be discussed in relation to both methodology and findings. The understanding that values expressing unity in diversity is easier to find in the Nordic countries will be discussed together with the complex relation between majority cultures and minority religions across Europe. Different roles of the states are following a north-south divide while different definitions of minorities on the whole are following an east-west divide of Europe. Women dominate in all sectors but differently in different parts of Europe. An important challenge facing national welfare states today is how to maintain the bonds of solidarity in an increasingly diverse society. The question which is furthered to The Impact of Religion-Program in Uppsala is: In what ways do majority and minority welfare providers understand social cohesion and how is it implemented in their work.
