The regulation of religious diversity by European states: accommodation of religion or secular hegemony?
The primary purpose of this paper is to analyze the (political or legal) mechanisms for the regulation of cultural diversity, especially religious diversity, by European states. This research is conducted in light of the development and growth of the global phenomenon of migration and its consequences, especially in Europe. Due to its evolution and the challenges that it often poses to the organization of contemporary societies, states increasingly have the need to regulate the activity of churches and religious communities for the sake of the balance/pacification of religious diversity. This regulation is usually based on secular principles and solutions that nonetheless recognize, accommodate, and promote activities of particular churches or religious communities. However, as in the examples of national legislation or political practices - such as morality policies - there is a certain hegemony of these secular values which have consequences for religion.
