Project description:

This project explores the transmission of religious beliefs and values through the education system and the family across different EU country contexts. The two-year study is funded through the EU Seventh Framework Programme involving a consortium of seven partners and co-ordinated by the ESRI. The study began on the 1st January 2008 and will receive co-funding amounting to €833,628 from the European Commission.

This innovative project will contribute to the conceptualisation of religious socialisation within multicultural settings and to policy development in the educational arena by highlighting the role of religion in school choice as well as potential tensions between home and school regarding religious formation and practice.
