Contemporary South Africa - the Interaction Between Religion and Politics

Research profile seminar

Post-apartheid South Africa a country with an ethnically complex compound population, 11 official languages, an unemployment rate of 29 percent, extreme income gaps, and political instability. What is the role of religion in today's society? What interaction bet- ween religion and politics take place, and with what result?

What does interaction between religion and politics mean for the constitutional dispensation and the rule of law? What significance does the enormous growth of African Indigenous Churches and their silent political influence have? The impact of the prosperity gospel on poorer communities? The absence or very small presence of radical fundamentalism in either Christianity or Islam? The use of religion to cover for corruption and incompetence? About interaction between religion and politics, as it also is reflected in contemporary South African art.

Piet Naude, director of the University of Stellenbosch Business School, South Africa, Jyoti Mistry, professor of film at Valand Academy, and Arne Rasmusson professor systematic theology, Department of Literature, History of ideas and Religion, both at the University of Gothenburg.
