The Future of Religion and Secular Democracy

(p.183) Conclusion
Faithful to Secularism

David T. Buckley

Columbia University Press

This chapter documents some areas for future research and implications of the argument for the relationship between religion and democracy. Future research could focus on links between elite preferences and popular opinion, and on obstacles to gaining elite consensus over the twin tolerations. Benevolent secularism’s future prospects will also be shaped by international dynamics, among both religious and secular elites, that will challenge traditional alliances at the national level.

Keywords:   Religion, Democracy, Secular elites, Benevolent secularism
