Young People’s Attitudes to Religious Diversity (Hardcover)
about this item
Investigating the hitherto unexplored topic of how young people understand and relate to religious diversity in the social context in which they are growing up, this book makes a significant contribution to the existing body of literature on religious diversity and multiculturalism. It closes a gap in knowledge about young peopleâ€™s attitudes to religious diversity, and reports data gathered across the whole of the UK as well as comparative chapters on Canada, USA and continental Europe. Reporting findings from both qualitative and quantitative research which reveal, for example, the importance of the particular social and geographical context within which young people are embedded, the volume addresses young peopleâ€™s attitudes towards the range of â€˜world religionsâ€™ as well as non-religious stances and offers an interdisciplinary approach through the different analytical perspectives of the contributors.
