    Believers and Belligerents: Exploring Faith-Based Mediation in Internal Armed Conflicts2013In: Politics, Religion & Ideology, ISSN 2156-7689, E-ISSN 2156-7697, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 556-577Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores faith-based mediation in armed conflict, that is, diplomatic initiatives taken by explicitly religious organisations in order to settle or manage armed conflicts through some process of dialogue with the warring parties. Whereas previous research on religious peacemaking in general, and on faith-based mediation in particular, have been dominated by case analysis, anecdotal evidence and conceptual work, this study presents the first global cross-country dataset on faith-based mediations in armed conflicts. In this descriptive analysis, we map the empirical landscape of faith-based mediation in armed conflicts around the world, during the time period 1989–2008. Utilising and developing a typology from Cynthia Sampson [‘Religion and Peacebuilding’ in I.W. Zartman and L.J. Rasmussen (eds) Peacemaking in International Conflict (Washington, DC: United States Institute of Peace Press, 2002)], this study generates three major findings, (1) faith-based mediation primarily occurs in situations where religion is not part of the conflict itself; (2) the organisation of faith-based mediation are significantly different in the Christian and the Islamic contexts; and (3) there is decrease in frequency of faith-based mediation over the studied time period, which could indicate a trend of decreasing international peacemaking engagement from the faith-based communities. Our descriptive analysis opens up new avenues for future empirical work on the occurrence, dynamics and effects of faith-based mediation.

    Politicisation of Religion in Scandinavian Parliamentary Debates 1988–20092014In: Politics, Religion & Ideology, ISSN 2156-7689, E-ISSN 2156-7697, Vol. 15, no 4, p. 565-582Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to study possible changes in the politicisation of religion in Scandinavia over time in records from parliamentary debates in Denmark, Norway and Sweden 1988–1989, 1998–1999 and 2008–2009. The study has shown that religion has been more politicised in terms of the number of speeches and debates with references to religion and the degree of problematisation of religion in Denmark and Norway. That is particularly the case with right-wing populist parties in opposition to Islam that possibly use it as a way of profiling in political competition. In contrast, Sweden has not seen a similar development, which may be due to the fact that it did not have a right-wing populist party in its parliament until 2010. The empirical findings of this study are discussed in relation to theories on globalisation and the boundary disputes that may arise as a consequence of globalisation, not least when religion, and particularly Islam, has been perceived to challenge societal core values.
