Politics and Religion Journal: Announcements https://politicsandreligionjournal.com/index.php/prj <p>The<em> Politics and Religion Journal</em> is the world’s first theoretical publication dedicated to this emerging discipline in political science. The idea for the journal was spawned by a group of researchers working in the area of <strong>politology of religion</strong>. All studies published in the journal are reviewed by two qualified experts. The Politics and Religion Journal is published by the Center for Study of Religion and Religious Tolerance in Belgrade, Serbia.</p> <p>The <em>Politics and Religion Journal</em> welcomes a broad spectrum of views and opinions. The true contribution to our scientific discipline is the sole criteria that editors use to select texts, meaning that truth will not be sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. Truth is the ultimate criteria for genuine science. The Politics and Religion Journal was largely inspired by the notion of freedom of expression advanced by John Stuart Mill: “We could never be sure that opinion-to-be-suppressed is wrong, and even if it is, it would be a mistake to suppress it.”</p> <p>The <em>Politics and Religion Journal</em> was founded by Dr. Miroljub Jevtic, an IPSA member and a professor of Politology of religion in the political science department at the University of Belgrade. Dr. Jevtic also serves as the journal’s editor-in-chief.</p> en-US Transition to Chicago Style Referencing and Citation https://politicsandreligionjournal.com/index.php/prj/announcement/view/39 <p>We are excited to share a significant update regarding our referencing and citation style.

Judaism is at the core of Zionist ideology and the State of Israel’s identity. But is Judaism a religion, a nationality, or both? If both, how do the two aspects relate to each other? How do they relate to democracy; to human rights; to equal citizenship? Is Israeli society undergoing a process of religionization or of secularization? Can Israel be Jewish and democratic at the same time?

It was born 26 years ago at the Department of Political science, University of Belgrade, in&nbsp; the school year 1993/1994, when it was clear that Political scientist&nbsp;<br>started to realize that religion is in the very essence of some of the most important political events in the world: Iranian Islamic revolution, founding of Israel and Pakistan, downfall of Yugoslavia etc. At the&nbsp;<br>same time, Political scientist started to realize that religion, among&nbsp;other factors, is one of the most important driving forces for other&nbsp;political events, such is its role in dissolution of the Warsaw pact.&nbsp;<br>After 9/11, this fact was even more visible. It goes to this day, with&nbsp;the last statements of Vain Mattis saying that priorities of the U.S.&nbsp;foreign politics are: China, Russia, North Korea and Iran, with fight&nbsp;<br>against Islamic terrorism at the top of the bucket list. On the other hand, religious topics are often in the coverage of the worldwide media: migrant crisis and Islam; recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of&nbsp;<br>Israel; question of the future of democracy in EU, which stands out of&nbsp;the Shuman’s attitude that European democracy is supposed to be&nbsp;Christian or it will collapse into anarchy. This panel is intended to&nbsp;<br>cover all of these topics.</p> <p><strong>Keywords:</strong> politology of religion, democracy, future, religion, conflicts, USA, politics</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Politics and Religion Journal 2018-01-24 IPSA World Congress - Brisbane 2018, Panel seeking papers https://politicsandreligionjournal.com/index.php/prj/announcement/view/7 <p>The next IPSA's World Congress will take&nbsp;place in Brisbane, Australia, July 21-26th 2018.

Among many other fields, religion has a massive influence in political parties<br>as well. This fact can be seen in several different ways. First of all, many political parties are formed with concrete religious marks, such are Demo Christian parties or Muslim Brotherhood. On the other hand,some<br>political parties are dealing a lot with the issues regarding religion, despite the fact they are formally secular. Moreover, we can see the influence of religion on political parties throw their work with different NGOs dealing with religion. And last but not the least many religious organizations are working with political parties and lobby groups in order to achieve their own interests.</p> <p>This panel should gather scholars and political scientists familiar with the relationships between political parties and religion from all around the world and from various religious traditions, whose papers will give a contribution in developing this important field of research. Therefore, this panel should be a humble contribution to the development of politology of religion, one of the youngest political science discipline, firstly introduced in the curriculum of the Department of Political Science, University of Belgrade, in the school year 1993/1994.</p> <p>Key words: religion, political parties, influence, relationships,&nbsp;politology of religion</p> Politics and Religion Journal 2017-09-18 10 years of the Politics and Religion Journal, Conference Proceedings https://politicsandreligionjournal.com/index.php/prj/announcement/view/6 <p>Conference proceeding from the international conference dedicated to the ten years of the Politics and Religion Journal is now published.
