Religion, Politics, and Gender Equality: Public Religions Revisited
Author: José Casanova
April 1, 2009
In this working paper, José Casanova revisits his 1994 work, Public Religions in the Modern World, in light of two pressing critiques. First, how does the public religions framework expand beyond the largely Western cases through which it was developed? And second, what are the implications of public religions for the future of gender equality on the global stage? Casanova prepared the paper for the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development.
