“Making Democracy One’s Own” Conversation

The University of Notre Dame’s Contending Modernities blog has initiated a public conversation around our conference, “Making Democracy One’s Own: Muslim, Catholic and Secular Perspectives in Dialogue on Democracy, Development and Peace,” here. For my take, from the conference, on the renewal of religiously rooted projects of democracy in Europe and the Middle East and what that might have to do with religious humanism and interreligious dialogue, you can read that there (here), too.
