The conference on Religion in Society is organized by the Institute for Democracy and Mediation, Belgrade Open School, Analitika Center for Social Research and the Institute for Social Sciences and Humanities, with the support of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
This regional conference aims to explore threats and opportunities for the role of religion in Western Balkans societies and to contribute to enhancing societal and policy mechanisms to better respond to future challenges in this regard.

Selected papers will be published in the Religion in Society Research Conference volume and the websites of the organizers.
