About Religion and International Studies (RAIS)

It is clear that religion is an important factor in understanding how events unfold in the world of International Studies, and no less so than in recent years. We run a great risk in failing to understand precisely how religion matters - and how, indeed, it does not, where it is used as an excuse to problematise religious communities. This group within BISA is a platform to discuss and tease out some of these tensions, and to build on such discussions for publications, events and further activities going forward.
