Religious Pluralism, Globalization, and World Politics

Oxford University Press

This chapter sets out a working definition of religious pluralism in world affairs, discusses its relationship with globalization, and explores six of its related dimensions: fragile identity politics, strong ethical commitments, international-national-local linkages, interfaith and intrafaith dynamics, religious-secular interaction, and the centrality of the United States. The overview of these dimensions serves to introduce the individual essays, compare their arguments, and sketch the overall contours of religious pluralism, globalization, and world politics in the contemporary era.

Keywords:   religious pluralism, globalization, world politics, identity, United States, secular, international, national
