Chapter 32: Global religion in a post-Westphalia world
Restricted access

This chapter addresses how globalization, de-privatization, mass-scale migration and the rise of supranational constitutional organisms squarely challenge the premises of the Westphalian model of coordination of religion and political boundaries. First, it shows how the resurgence of strong religion impacts the interplay between faith and reason in a liberal polity. Next, it focuses on the influence of transnational religious actors on domestic and international law-making and litigation in the sphere of religious freedom and sexual and reproductive rights. Finally, it analyses the impact of politicized religion on the traditional Western models of managing the relationship between religion and the state.
