CoGREE | Projects

Religare - a CoGREE position paper: The RELIGARE project is about religions, belonging, beliefs and secularism in Europe. It examines the legal rules protecting or limiting (constraining) the experiences of religious or other belief-based communities. Where the practices of communities or individuals do not conform to State law requirements, or where communities turn to their own legal regimes or tribunals, the reasons behind these developments need to be understood

CoGREE is involved in a number of projects in Europe:

  • The CoGREE reader - go
  • The CoGREE invited consultation - go
  • New education programmes - go
