24.11.2021: Rashad Ibadov on “Modelling the State – Religion Relations in the former Soviet Muslim-majority States“

As part of the EEGA Colloquium, we cordially invite you to the presentation by Rashad Ibadov (ADA University) on “Modelling the State – Religion Relations in the former Soviet Muslim-majority States: constitutional secularity and increasing societal religiosity in the context of democratic state building in Azerbaijan” on 24 November 2021, 5-6.30 pm c.t. (CET).

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the new Muslim-majority, though formally secular states have arguably been lacking adequate experiences in establishing appropriate relations vis-à-vis religion(s), particularly in the context of significant religious revivalism. This situation, which has been affecting to the political identities of citizens, has deeply segmented some of the post-Soviet societies, which may potentially bring constitutional calamities in the near future. In this regard, this presentation aims at discussing a constitutional strategy which may become useful for developing a better relationship between the state and religion, and eventually, managing ‘conscious compartmentalization’ in these societies.
