3rd ANU Religion Conference - Religion and Migration: Culture and Policy (POSTPONED TO 2021)
Forms of human movement including global immigration, asylum-seeking, climate migration, and the internal migration accompanying mass urbanisation, have radically altered religious cultures around the world, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. The aim of this 3rd ANU Religion Conference is to explore the various phenomena related to religion and migration; the political and social transitions impacting upon the transnational religiosity of contemporary communities.
In light of the COVID-19 crisis, the conference has been postponed to December 2021. Further changes may be required in the future in accordance with public health considerations, travel restrictions, and higher education and research funding.
