Researching new Intersections of Diversity
Soziokulturelle Vielfalt (Prof. Dr. Steven Vertovec)
MPI zur Erforschung multireligiöser und multiethnischer Gesellschaften, Göttingen
SummaryWidespread and accelerating globalization processes have meant that modes and markers of diversity have become more enhanced. The current rising salience of ethnic and religious identities is emblematic of such developments. The Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity will be devoted to comparative research and theoretical analysis of historical and contemporary patterns of diversity in Europe and around the world.
