Cultural and religious plurality poses new challenges for dignity as a central value of modern societies. How can we create conditions that guarantee participants in pluralistic societies dignified lives? Which role could and should civil, public, and religious actors and organizations play, including urban designers, ethicists, religious studies scholars and theologians? This event will offer transatlantic perspectives on religious community formation in and interaction with urban space and built environments. Speakers will address immigration and community building as well as spatial politics and its impact on the well-being of religious and non-religious communities.
