‘Religion, Security and Global Uncertainties’ Report published

Prof John Wolffe and Dr Gavin Moorhead are very pleased to announce the publication of the Religion, Security and Global Uncertainties report. This report examines the relationship between religion and security, including terrorism and so-called ‘religious violence’. It has two key objectives:

  • To provide guidance on identifying circumstances in which religion (either on its own or in combination with other factors) is likely to give rise to security challenges.
  • To provide a constructive interrogation of some underexplored assumptions relating to religion and security.

The report is informed by research conducted between October 2013 and January 2014, which included a series of interviews with academic researchers and roundtable discussions with MPs, public policy officers, journalists, Church Minsters, school head teachers and representatives of faith communities, local community organisations and NGOs.
