    Views on Human Rights among Christian, Muslim and non-religious youth in Norway and Sweden2012In: Nordic Journal of Religion and Society, ISSN 0809-7291, E-ISSN 1890-7008, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 67-81Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the relation between religion and attitudes towards human rights among young people aged 17 to 19. The data material consists of 1660 questionnaires filled out in the classrooms by upper secondary school pupils living in the capital city of Oslo and in the Stockholm/ Uppsala area. We want first to find out if there are closer relations between religion and attitudes towards human rights concerning the private sphere than for attitudes towards human rights concerning the public sphere. By rights related to the private sphere we mean views on abortion and family values and by rights related to the public sphere we mean the right to work, views on social equality, freedom of speech, political interest and environmental protection. The study also looks at differences in this regard between Christians, Muslims and a group of nonreligious. The main result is that while a closer relation can be seen between religion and attitudes concerning the private sphere than attitudes concerning the public sphere, there is no support for the assumption that this relationship is stronger amongst the Muslim sub-group.

    Intersections between Biopolitics and Religion: Cases of Politicisation of Religion in Finland and Norway2019In: Nordic Journal of Religion and Society, ISSN 0809-7291, E-ISSN 1890-7008, Vol. 32, no 1, p. 40-54Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article comparatively studies intersections between biopolitics and religion in Finnish and Norwegian parliamentary debates on assisted reproductive technologies and biotechnology. In both countries, references to religion have been prevalent in policy processes and parliamentary debates on these issues, with Christian Democrats actively promoting bioethics. The article analyses references to religion and the role of national churches and Christian Democratic parties. It also discusses under what conditions religious positions influence political decisions and how these cases bring nuance to theories of politicisation of religion. Legal sources and parliamentary proceedings of plenary sessions are analysed through critical discourse analysis. The article suggests that reproductive politics has contributed to politicisation of religion in the Finnish and Norwegian parliaments, identifying blurred boundaries between public and private spheres and a discursive framework of values debates.

    Religious Complexity in Nordic Public Spheres2019In: Nordic Journal of Religion and Society, ISSN 0809-7291, E-ISSN 1890-7008, Vol. 32, no 1, p. 71-90Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article studies empirically the complexity of religion in the public sphere by systematically comparing the five Nordic countries. Sociologists debate if current trends in the West point to secularization or a return of religion (deprivatization, desecularization, or post-secularity). By drawing on the social science complexity reference, this article offers a critique of current scholarship and introduces the concept of religious complexity. The empirical study asks how religion is regulated, debated, and negotiated in the state, the polity, the media, and civil society in the Nordic countries since the 1980s. It is based on multiple sources of data. The analysis shows several religious trends at different levels: A growing secularization at the individual level, and the deprivatization of religion in politics, the media, and civil society. The conclusion outlines the religious complexity in the Nordic countries and discusses possible explanations that link the different and seemingly inconsistent trends.

    Giving Satirical Voice to Religious Conflict: The Potentials of the Cultural Public Sphere2017In: Nordic Journal of Religion and Society, ISSN 0809-7291, E-ISSN 1890-7008, Vol. 30, no 02, p. 136-152Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study concerns the Danish public service broadcaster DR’s television satire and comedy show Det slører stadig [Still Veiled] (2013) and its influence on public discussions and controversies concerning religion. Whereas news media’s coverage of Islam is often criticized for having a negative bias and thereby serving to escalate conflict, the cultural programming of public service broadcasters may provide different representations and enable more diverse discussions. In this study we consider how and to what extent Still Veiled gave rise to discussion and controversy concerning religion in both the general public sphere and in smaller cultural publics constituted through various social network media. The analysis shows that several, very different framings of religion appear in these debates. These debates furthermore involve a significant proportion of minority voices. The analysis suggests that a cultural public sphere may work as a corrective to the political public sphere dominated by news media.

    Religion in Nordic Party Platforms 1988-20082013In: Nordic Journal of Religion and Society, ISSN 0809-7291, E-ISSN 1890-7008, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 121-139Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I will analyse how Nordic political parties refer to religion in party platforms from the late 1980s until 2008 in light of increased religious diversity and changed relations between church and state in the Nordic countries. Four questions are asked: (1) Does the number of issue-areas related to religion increase or decrease over time in the party platforms? (2) Does the connection between religion and other political issues, such as national identity, foreign policy, and human rights, change during this period? (3) How do the political parties view the positions of the majority churches and do they change over time? (4) What differences can be observed between the political parties in their approach to religion? The data consist of 136 party platforms from all the five Nordic countries in 1988, 1998, and 2008. The analysis shows that issues-areas related to religion increase in Denmark, Iceland, Finland and Sweden, but decrease slightly in Norway. Religion is often mentioned in connection to religious diversity and globalization. The position of the majority churches in party platforms is fairly strong over time, although to decreasing degree, particularly in Sweden and Norway. Finally, the traditional religious cleavage (Lipset and Rokkan 1967) is still evident in Nordic politics, although the right-wing populist parties complicates this picture as they tend to use religion to defend national values against consequences of religious diversity.

    Religious socialization in a media age2012In: Nordic Journal of Religion and Society, ISSN 0809-7291, E-ISSN 1890-7008Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Recent studies in the Nordic countries show that among younger generations the media is a more frequent arena than family and church for contacts with religious ideas and values. This situation challenges understandings of religious socialization as a process situated in and controlled by religious institutions as well as continuity of religious values, ideas and identity as the outcome of the process. This article argues for a development of conceptual tools to account for religious socialization as a process shaped by the dynamic between tradition and transformation, knowledge and skills, and religious and other institutions for symbolic communication in society. Drawing on recent discussions of the concepts of religious literacy and media literacy, the article proposes an inclusion of “religious media literacy” as a significant part of a future research agenda for understanding religious socialization in contemporary times.

    Halal-tv: Negotiating the place of religion in Swedish public discourse2011In: Nordic Journal of Religion and Society, ISSN 0809-7291, E-ISSN 1890-7008, Vol. 24, no 1, p. 57-74Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the fall 2008 the program Halal-tv, where three young, Muslim women discussed Swedish society and culture, caused several debates in Swedish media. This article analyzes the first debate taking place in op-ed articles in the Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet and blog posts linking to these. The analysis focuses on the understandings of the place of religion in public discourse expressed in the debate. The authors conclude that the debate, on the one hand, confirms a polarized understanding of Swedish values as opposed to religious values. On the other hand, there are indications that Halal-tv opened up a space for negotiations of the role of the media in representing religion, and the place of religion in Swedish culture. In analyzing perspectives and issues brought up in the debate this article can contribute to further research on media as arena for negotiations of the place of religion in post-secular society.

    Mediated Religion Across Time And Space: A Case Study Of Norwegian Newspapers2013In: Nordic Journal of Religion and Society, ISSN 0809-7291, E-ISSN 1890-7008, Vol. 26, no 1, p. 25-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, data on coverage of religion in secular newspaper is seen in relation to the theory of mediatization of religion as presented by Stig Hjarvard (2008b, 2011). He describes mediatization in general as a process through which core elements of a social or cultural activity assume media form. The suitability of Hjarvard's hypotheses on religion is discussed with the use of indices on mediatization across time as well as across space. Each index is applied to data from a study of Norwegian newspapers in the NOREL programme on religion in the public sphere. The exercise shows that we need to be distinct in both analysis and theoretical claims about changes in the public presence of religion. The article concludes that a dialogue between media studies and sociology of religion can be fruitful in order to further understand the presence of religion in the public sphere.

    State and Religion in Sweden: Ambiguity Between Disestablishment and Religious Control.2011In: Nordic Journal of Religion and Society, ISSN 0809-7291, E-ISSN 1890-7008, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 119-135Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1850s Sweden has been moving from almost total unity between state and Church towards a religiously neutral and secular state. A major step was taken on 1 January 2000, when new legislation entailing a fundamental change in the relationship between religious groups and the state was introduced. It aimed to place the various faith communities in Sweden on an equal basis, while simultaneously maintaining continuity with respect to the Church of Sweden as the national majority church. These two ambiguous objectives show an inherent tension within the Church-state reform and indicate that the separation between the two is not complete. This article questions the limits of the Church-state reform. Can the present day Swedish state be regarded as secular and neutral in relation to the various religions? The analysis of legal and financial regulations controlling relations between the state and the different faith communities show that the separation between Church and state does not mean a total separation. Consequently the state is still not religiously neutral, but continues to control religion in different ways and retains a special close relationship with the former state church.
