Religion is a contested discursive field in which resources, belonging or exclusion and supremacy in relation to values are negotiated. Diversification processes and religious pluralisation during the alleged return of religion have re-raised the questions of how religion should be interpreted and how accessible it is. As a contribution to intersectionality research, this publication analyses how and in what interest new interfaces are being formed between religion, gender, origin, class and the nation. Its focus lies on educational processes as forms of socialisation, places of learning and reflexive change in religion. It aims to provide a forum for analysing and finding solutions to problems in ‘post-secular’ societies in Western Europe, which are being challenged by discussions on secularism, integration, how they deal with their history and liberal constitutional states.
