Content

Religion has played a prominent role in the public sphere in the last two decades due to processes of globalisation and mediatisation. Societies are increasingly religiously diverse and non-religious, largely as a result of widespread movement of people, and global media is increasingly shaping our societies and influencing public policies. In addition, religion has frequently been the subject of public debate and concern regarding issues of radicalisation, values, gender equity and environmental risks. This unit examines the nexus between religion, rights, and governance, through the study of theories of managing and governing religious diversity. These theories will then be applied to a range of public policy issues pertaining to religion and education, gender, sexuality, and countering extremism in and beyond Australia.
