“Does God Matter? Representing Religion in the European Union and the United States”


12-13 November 2010 at Aston Business School, Aston University in Birmingham.

The European Union has largely been considered an economic and political project in which religion has only a small role to play. However, political mobilisation related to the drafting of the European Constitution and the increasing presence of religious groups in Brussels after 1992 have inserted the representation of religion into the decision-making process. For the first time in the history of European integration, the Lisbon Treaty institutionalises the dialogue between the European Union and religious actors in the most important document of the acqui communautaire.

This conference focuses on the political mobilisation of religious actors in Europe and compares the types and impact of religious representation in the European Union and the United States.

The conference is free and open to all but registration is required.  To register please completed the booking form on the Aston Centre for Europe website: by the 15 October 2010.  For further information please contact Dr. Lucian Leustean on 0121 204 3767 or email:
