    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.

    Uskonto postsekulaarissa yhteiskunnassa2018In: Uskontososiologia / [ed] Ketola, Kimmo; Martikainen, Tuomas; Taira, Teemu, Helsinki: Eetos , 2018, p. 76-86Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter examines theories of public visibility of religions. The separation of public life and religion is not as strong as the secularization paradigm implied. Casanova's (1994) concept of deprivatization of religion, Berger's (1999) idea of the return of religion and Habermas's (2008) concept of post-secular society are three ways of expressing the public visibility of religion. The chapter focuses primarily on the three-part description of the post-secular society by Habermas (2008). The chapter also discusses the relationship between religion and politics. Recent political discussions about family, marriage and sexuality have opened the doors of politics to religion in Finland. The author interprets the role of Nordic churches as social resources as an example of a post-secular situation.
