Appel à communication jusqu’au 3 septembre 2012
Extrait de la présentation en ligne :
"Identity, Religion and Ethnicity are three terms interrelated and become all important issues in the European Union and its neighbourhood. The socio-economic transformations of societies resulting from immigration and emigration of people, mindsets, symbols are forcing the change on identity and citizenship relations. Today, a high degree of human mobility, telecommunications have contributed to the new understanding of citizenship as a mode of identity in relation to national identity, ethnicity, religion and social movements. Belonging to an ethnic-religious group and consequent features are increasingly either blurred or strengthened in the new national and international contexts. The motivations and modes of belonging and identifying are much more diverse. It is therefore useful to explore relatively new patterns of the interactions between religion, identity and ethnicity issues.
