Network for the Study of War and Religion in the Twentieth Century

This international network promotes collaborative and interdisciplinary research into the area of war and religion since c.1900.

It supports the study of every area of the world, of all religious traditions, and of civil wars and insurgencies as well as inter-state conflicts. It encourages scholarly inquiry into a range of issues and themes such as religion and the armed forces; religion, war and civilian societies; the wartime role of national and transnational religious organisations; religion, humanitarianism and relief work; religiously-inspired pacifism, violence and reconciliation; religious influences on mourning, commemoration and remembrance.
