Our pan-European project „Religion im Fokus der Öffentlichkeit“ (since 2010)

This pan-European project was initiated by our institute in 2010 and runs under our responsibility together with various cooperation partners since then. There has been a first international symposium at the University of Vienna in October, 2011. The subject was “Zwischen Kruzifix und Minarett. Religion im Fokus der Öffentlichkeit”. All speeches of this symposium have already been published.

The second symposium of this series took place in Mai, 2014 at the Protestant Academy of Berlin. This time, the subject was mainly religion in schools. The third symposium for 2020/21 is planned in Bucharest on the relationship between religion and a nation regarding the orthodox church, followed by another later in Ankara on the issue of secular societies in Islamic context.


In addition, several public events take place as part of our project, like the speech by the Vice president of the Bundestag, Dr. h.c. Wolfgang Thierse, on “Religion ist keine Privatsache” in June 2013 in Vaduz.


In order to celebrate the institute’s 10th anniversary (2004 – 2014), a ceremony took place in June 2014 at the council chamber of Vaduz. On this occasion, Prof. Dr. Frank Mathwig (Schweizer Evangelischcher Kirchenbund SEK, Institut für Theologie und Ethik ITE, Bern – Swiss protestant churches SEK, institute for Theologiy and Ethics ITE, Bern) gave a speech on “Die Zumutung der Toleranz. Wie viel Religion verträgt der liberale Staat?”.
