The role of religion in the public sphere. A comparative study of the five Nordic countries (NOREL)
A major trend in the Nordic countries during the past 20 years is that religion has become more visible, and perhaps more significant, in the public sphere. The NOREL project (2009-2013) compares religious changes during the past twenty years in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Iceland, and Sweden. NOREL is a NORDCORP project (Nordic Collaborative Research Project) awarded by Joint Committee for Nordic Research Councils for the Humanities and the Social sciences (NOS-HS).
