Stimmen zum Buch:

“A lively, engaging, and insightful set of sociological, philosophical, and theological essays addressing an urgent dynamic shaping contemporary politics across Europe: the intersection of migration, religious identity, and the construction of a democratic common life.” (Luke Bretherton, Duke University, USA)
“Religion without borders? Faith without prejudice? This collection of essays unpacks the complex ways that religion is implicated in Europe’s so-called migrant crisis. The authors examine the positioning of religion within migration debates, and discuss a variety of religious responses to migration. The effect is to show the enduring imprint of religion on politics and culture across Europe, and to remind us of religion’s dual capacity to open hearts and to close minds.” (Julie Clague, University of Glasgow, UK)

“The current refugee crisis challenges all forms of European self-understanding. This compelling book by a multi-religious group of experts tackles the burning issues in this dramatic struggle for Europe’s future. It provides necessary analysis and courageous proposals for a more critical and self-critical theological contribution to the public debate on the emerging shape of Europe.” (Werner G. Jeanrond, University of Oxford, UK)
