Nachdem die Politikwissenschaft diesem Spannungsfeld lange Zeit kaum Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt hat, erfährt das Wechselverhältnis von faith und Demokratie in jüngster Zeit eine neue Aktualität.

Der vorliegende Band greift diese Thematik auf.

Dies geschieht mit qualitativen Einzelfallstudien, die den Zusammenhang von faith und Demokratie im Raum des orthodoxen Christentums, im jüdisch-israelischen Kontext sowie in den religiösen Traditionen Asiens untersuchen.
