Graduate School "RePliR"
The graduate school "Religious Plurality and its Regulation in the Region" (RePliR) is funded by the North Rhine-Westphalian Ministry of Culture and Science and is a joint project of CERES and the Center for Religion and Modernity (CRM) of the Univeristy of Münster. The aim of the re-search group is to investigate religious plurality and its regulation, to ana-lyze its effects and potential conflicts in other areas of society, and to iden-tify possible solutions. Ten doctoral students tackle this task with their individual projects. They are supervised by university lecturers from vari-ous disciplines. The disciplines are broadly diverse, ranging from the study of religion to history, media studies, law, and economics. The doctoral students are in regular exchange with partners from various areas of social practice. The spectrum ranges from the diocese of Essen to the public broadcaster WDR and the German Humanist association. Through this conception, the graduate school investigates research questions from history to the present.
