Religious Education, Communal Identity and National Politics in the Muslim World
Leirvik, Oddbjorn
British Journal of Religious Education, v26 n3 p223-236 Sep 2004
This article discusses models for religious education in school in (parts of) the Muslim world and the implied relation between self and other, confessional and national identity. The question of how current models and discussions respond to globalized issues in education is also discussed. The last part of the article identifies triggering factors behind some recent attempts at establishing more inclusive ways of teaching about religion and ethics in school. (Contains 17 notes.)
