The final meeting for the Religion and Diversity Project was held October 26-28, 2017 at the University of Ottawa. The meeting brought together team members, international guests, policy partners, students, and postdoctoral fellows, and served as a space to integrate reflections on our research over the past seven years which aimed to build a foundation for the development of new and innovative inquiries in the dynamic and changing field of religion and diversity.
The meeting hosted numerous international guests, who stimulated wide ranging dialogue across the Project’s themes that we hope will continue after the Religion and Diversity Project itself has ended. Our final meeting hosted roundtable sessions on topics of critical relevance such as: migration, education, state and local regulation, nonreligion and religion, indigeneity, and complex futures. Panelists included team members, policy stakeholders, partners, and others who have been friends of the Project.
