Transnationalism in the Pacific Region as a Concept of State Identity

Introduction The Pacific region, because of the interesting dynamics of its development in recent decades (since the 70s of the past century, i.e., the change in New Zealand’s national policy on minorities), has become the center of investigation by professionals from different fields, who are examining the development of New Zealand’s position (i.e., Miller 1995 , Perry-Webster 1999 , Butcher 2012 ) as a key player in the region as the country has also declared itself in official documents ( Statement of Intent 2008–2009 , 12) See more: http

Secular Formatting of the Sacred: Human Rights and the Question of Secularization and Re-Sacralization

coined by Max Weber and used in order to describe a long historical development toward a more natural and secular understanding of the world, from the prophets of the Old Testament up to the modern critique of religion.

How to Respond to Conflicts Over Value Pluralism?

Introduction When it comes to understanding socio-cultural conflicts, including conflicts over values, the Netherlands offers an intriguing empirical case, which also helps us to understand similar developments in other West-European countries. Let me start with a recent example of such a conflict, which has caused a lot of social unrest each year since it cropped up for the first time in the fall of 2013. It is about the festival of Sinterklaas , celebrated on December 5. Although it has for centuries been the country’s most important children’s holiday

Contemporary Religiosity and the Absence of Solidarity With Those in Need

interpretations. What Comes after Secularization – The Czech Case Study Secularization was understood in European modernity as a process of emancipation from religion, in which religious thinking, practices, and institutions lost social significance. The turn of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries brought new developments within this paradigm (see Martin 2005 , Davie 1999 ). Thus, we now speak about different modes of the return of religion and spirituality into the public space and about its coexistence with what of the secularization paradigm is still alive. I
