Religious diversity is now a social fact in most countries of the world. While reports of the impact of religious diversity on Europe and North America are reasonably well-known, the ways in which Southeast Asia and Asia Pacific are religiously diverse and the ways this diversity has been managed are not.

"This book fills a gap in authoritative analyses of the causes of inter-religious conflict and the practice of religious toleration. The rise of more overt expressions of Islamic piety and greater bureaucratization of Islam in both Indonesia and Malaysia over several decades have tested the "live and let live" philosophy which used to characterize religious expression in these nations.

Religious and ethno-religious issues are inherent in many multiethnic and multi-religious societies. Singapore society is no exception. It has long been multiethnic, multicultural and multi-religious, being at the crossroads of many major and minor civilizations, cultures and traditions, and its religious diversity continues to develop in the current contexts of growing religiosity, religious.

Southeast Asia or Southeastern Asia is a subregion of Asia, consisting of the regions that are geographically south of China, east of the Indian subcontinent and north-west of Australia. Southeast Asia is bordered to the north by East Asia, to the west by South Asia and the Bay of Bengal, to the east by Oceania and the Pacific Ocean, and to the south by Australia and the Indian g code: Zone 6 & 8.

Southeast Asia has much religious diversity. Buddhism is widespread in the region, while the Philippines is mostly Catholic (as a result of Spanish rule), and Indonesia and Brunei are mostly Muslim. In addition, some Southeast Asians practice Hinduism, and others follow traditional local beliefs.

The Cold War in Southeast Asia was a many-faceted conflict, driven by regional historical imperatives as much as by the contest between global superpowers. The essays in this book offer the most detailed and probing examination to date of the cultural dimension of the Cold War in Southeast Asia.

What role do objects play in crafting the religions of Southeast Asia and shaping the experiences of believers. The Spirit of Things explores religious materiality in a region marked by shifting boundaries, multiple beliefs, and trends toward religious most studies of religion in Southeast Asia focus on doctrines or governmental policy, contributors to this volume recognize.

Carnegie Council's Pacific Fellow Dr. Dicky Sofjan is the editor of the new volume, "Religion, Public Policy and Social Transformation in Southeast Asia: Managing Religious Diversity." It is the first volume of a three-part book series dealing with religion and its interface with the state and society in Southeast Asia.

Fourteen percent of residents in the Southeast are not religious. The Pacific and New England: The Least Religious Regions. These two regions are collectively home to 10 of the 11 least religious states in the union. All of the five Pacific region states are among this group.

religious diversity. Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands are portrayed as a living laboratory of various religious blends, with a wide variance of histories and many different approaches to managing religious diversity.

While interesting in their own right, a study of these nations provides a wealth of case studies of diversity management. Here he concentrates on notions of power: political, social, ethnic, religious, etc. Buddhism has been used as a tool in Sri Lanka to gain and wield power, in some cases bolstering nationalism, in others challenging it.

The concept of power runs throughout the book, reminding the reader of the dynamic nature of religious practice. The spread of Hinduism in Southeast Asia and the Pacific.

Hinduism and Buddhism exerted an enormous influence on the civilizations of Southeast Asia and contributed greatly to the development of a written tradition in that area. About the beginning of the Common Era, Indian merchants may have settled there, bringing Brahmans and Buddhist monks with them.

Of those 14 percent, an astounding 67 percent were Bibles (25% of which were purchased in a digital format), followed by religious nonfiction at a respectable 22 percent.

Different contexts and different state capacities produce different outcomes. States that intervene too frequently in the religious realm risk undermining religious authorities who are critical allies; too little.

The volume is divided into three major sections: part 1, “Traditions from South Asia”; part 2, “Traditions from Southeast Asia”; and part 3, “Traditions from East and Central Asia.” Part 1 includes chapters on the Hindu and Other South Asian Religious Groups, the Sikhs, Asian Muslims and Zoroastrians.

Of the Southeast Asian countries, East Timor most recently gained its independence, as was mentioned in the previous lesson. In comparing these island nations, extensive diversity in all aspects will be found.Ethnic conflict, one of the most serious and widespread problems in the world today, can undermine efforts to promote political and economic development, as well as political, economic, and social justice.

It can also lead to violence and open warfare, producing horrifying levels of death and destruction. Although government policies on ethnic issues often have profound effects on a country.
