Presentation

Trained in history, Arabic language and political science, Valérie Amiraux (Doctorate, Sciences Po Paris) holds the Chaire de recherche du Canada en étude du pluralisme religieux which groups about 15 collaborators around two axis of research. The first compares the evolution of secular European regimes that are going through religious pluralisation (France, United Kingdom); the second engages in a theoretical reflection concerning the articulation between pluralism and radicalisation (religious, of representations).
