Overview

At a time of heightened globalization and reductions in welfare states, faithbased organizations are increasingly the source of vital social services. This multidisciplinary book presents original examples and a pan-European perspective to assess the role of faith-based organizations in combating poverty, social exclusion, and general distress in cities across Europe. Looking at how these organizations operate amid European controversies over immigration, integration, and the rise of religiousbased radicalism, this timely collection offers a crucial reference for academics, researchers, and decision-makers across a variety of fields, from sociology and geography to religious studies.

Faith-based organisations and exclusion in European cities is an anthology that is geared especially for those interested in learning about the concepts and practices of FBOs throughout Europe (and how what can be learned from them may be generalised in other regions), as well as those interested in advancing research in the field.”
