Secularism and Its Adversaries

Secularism and Its Adversaries, organized and chaired by Senior Research Fellow Peter L. Berger, looked to examine the tension between secularist elites and the national political processes in seven crucial countries or regions: The United States, Western Europe (with particular focus on the challenge of Muslim integration), Russia, China, India, Israel, and Turkey. The project aimed to address key policy questions concerning the place of secularism, secularity, and public religion in democratic politics.
