Religious Diversity

This cluster studies how religious diversity poses significant opportunities for human solidarity and happiness by providing people with choices in their creedal beliefs, religious identities, and faith communities, but diversity also poses problems of human conflict and disharmony. How we live together and how we solve our problems are the provinces of sociology, psychology, politics, history, and international relations. One of the major goals of this research cluster is to study how religion affects, and is affected by politics and society, so that we can understand the impact of current public policies in the hopes of making better ones.
