Policies dealing with religious diversity in liberal democratic states—as well as the established institutions that enforce those policies—are increasingly under pressure. Politics and political theory are caught in a trap between the fully secularized state and neo-corporate regimes of selective cooperation between states and organized religion. This volume proposes an original, comprehensive, and multidisciplinary approach to problems of governing religious diversity—combining moral and political philosophy, constitutional law, history, sociology, and religious anthropology. Drawing on such diverse scholarship, Secularism or Democracy? proposes an associational governance—a moderately libertarian, flexible variety of democratic institutional pluralism—as the plausible third way to overcome the inherent deficiencies of the predominant models.

About the Author:

Veit Bader is Professor of Sociology and Professor of Social and Political Philosophy at the University of Amsterdam.

Review:

A comprehensive analysis of some of the most debated issues concerning the role played by religion in contemporary society. Contextualised in a broad sociological and historical perspective, this book provides lawyers with a very helplful insight into the way new relations between law and religion are taking shape.[-][-]Silvio Ferrari[-]Professor of Law, University of Milan[-][-]This is a terrific book. I know of no other contemporary work on religion and politics that combines such sophisticated philosophical analysis with such deep sociological knowledge. It is a major contribution.[-][-]Joseph H. Carens[-]University of Toronto - Professor Veit Bader's book, SECULARISM OR DEMOCRACY? is a much needed book today. As many democracies face the renewed challenge of maintaining religious freedom in light of increasing numbers of religious minorities, it offers a way to protect the freedom of religious minorities, not by ignoring them or stifling their freedom, but by recognizing and accepting them in a truly pluralistic fashion.[-][-]Stephen Monsma,[-]Research Fellow[-]The Henry Institute for the Study of Christianity and Politics[-]Calvin College[-]Grand Rapids, MI[-]USA - In this important book, Veit Bader offers an anti-perfectionist defense of religious diversity and its associational governance. His bold and courageous approach to these issues is based on a concept of minimal morality that is coupled with a commitment to maximum institutional pluralism. Secularism or Democracy puts at center-stage the urgent need to revisit the relationship between religion and politics if we are to live together peacefully and respectfully in our diverse societies.[-]Ayelet Shachar[-]Leah Kaplan Visiting Professor in Human Rights[-]Stanford Law School[-]Stanford University[-]Stanford Law School, Stanford University
