Religion, Identity and Attitudes toward Minorities in Western Europe
Dr Neha Sahgal and Alan Cooperman from the Pew Research Center will present findings from a major new study examining identity, nationalism and attitudes toward migration and minorities in Western Europe. Based on an extensive survey conducted in 15 Western European countries, including France, the presentation takes a comparative look at Christian identity and secularization in Europe, and examines how attitudes toward minority groups, such as Muslims and Jews, are associated with religious beliefs and practices, nationalist sentiment, personal economic situation, social views, political ideology, as well as age, gender and education.
Discussants: Patrick Simon, Director of research, INED; Martin Clement, Défenseur des Droits
