Project:

Secular and Religious Policy-Making in 20th- and 21st-Century Europe and Beyond.
Social and Educational Aspects

My research is dedicated to the changes in the educational and social strategies pursued by the main religious actors in 20th- and 21st-century Christianity, viz. ecumenical religious bodies, the Roman Catholic Church, the Russian Orthodox Church, and the Pentecostal and Protestant denominations. I shall approach this topic with a particular focus on the development and implementation of human rights law.
