Religion and International Migration

Publication Date: 2021

This comprehensive Handbook entitled Handbook on Religion and International Relations examines relationships between religion and international relations, mainly focusing on several world religions – Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Judaism. Providing a timely update on this understudied topic, it evaluates how this complex relationship has evolved over the last four decades, looking at a variety of political contexts, regions and countries.

Original chapters analyse how varying religions shape people’s attitudes towards the organisation and operations of political systems worldwide. As well as investigating core issues and topics such as religion, foreign policy, terrorism and international security, the Handbook also provides clarity on topical and controversial issues such as Islamist extremism, Hindu nationalism and Christian civilisationism. 

In this framework, Kaya's chapter is an attempt to contribute to analysis of the complex relationship between religion and international migration.
