2nd European Conference for Religious
Dialogue and Cooperation

June 13-16, 2022 Struga, North Macedonia

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN RELIGION AND GLOBALIZATION:
RELIGIOUS PARTICULARISM VS. RELIGIOUS UNIVERSALISM

After the undoubted success that we achieved in the scientific and organizational aspect, at the First European Conference for Religious Dialogue and Cooperation (which we held in 2019), we continue at the same pace.

The deadline for submission of full papers is Oct 1, 2022.

Letter of the President

Europe, especially in the early Middle Ages, was shaped by the ancient authentic values of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. It is interesting that even though all these religions in their essence are close to each other, they originate from a common ancient foundation in Judaism and they all preach peace as an ideal, the multi-confessional regions have always been among the most conflicting regions in the world.

Above all, it is a result of the essence of religion. Especially the great monotheistic religions derived from the so-called Abrahamic tradition are very intolerant. They have firm and unchangeable points of view of the world, a strict code of ethics, and they draw a clear distinction between those who are and those who are not true believers. Their dogmas and rules given by God are eternal truth. They cannot be subject to negotiations, compromises, and variances. When such a group meets another similar group, they inevitably call each other heretics and apostates…
