Tuesday, April 27, 2021, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Radical changes over the past 20 years in Syria have continuously reshaped the political place and role of the religious field in the country. Throughout the course of the conflict, and despite the plurality of emergent political orders, religious actors, politicized forms of religiosity, and Jihadi groups emerged as embedded features of the Syrian political landscape. This renders questions about the role of the religious field in the political future of the country continuously relevant, specifically in processes of power consolidation and conflict transformation.

This panel sheds light on the question of religion and power consolidation in processes of conflict transformation. The Syrian experience is discussed based on local developments as well as by drawing from comparative evidence from other contexts.
