Inhalt

Nationalist populist movements endorse exclusionary strategies that fragment societies and marginalize people. Churches (should) respond by strengthening respect and equal participation, and by widening the civil society discourse through exchange between different global contexts and social locations. The conference has several aims: examining the mechanics of exclusionary populist movements, clarifying theological arguments against divisive politics, and - thereby - encouraging participatory processes that strengthen people’s agency in church and society. The Protestant Academy in Berlin, Bread for the World, the Church of Sweden, and the Lutheran World Federation bring together theologians, church leaders and political scientists from different parts of the world to further initiatives for inclusion, justice and (religious) pluralism. Die Fachtagung ist auf Englisch. Das öffentliche Abendforum am 2. Mai mit Landesbischof Prof. Dr. Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, dem Ratsvorsitzenden der EKD, und Erzbischöfin Prof. Dr. Antje Jackelén von der Schwedischen Kirche findet auf Deutsch statt.
