Available the Baseline Study

The IERS baseline study of religion education in the partner countries maps and analyses how religion and teaching (about) religion is played out in the official curricula for religion education or other school subjects, primarily in upper-secondary school in the five participating countries, i.e. Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain. On top of that the baseline study also highlights the most important trans-national European recommendations for the implementation of a study-of-religions based RE in the nation states of Europe, in order, hopefully, for religion education to contribute to intercultural understanding, tolerance and a constructive handling of religious and cultural diversity and conflict.
