On 31 August Alberta Giorgi participated in the European Sociological Association (ESA) Sociology of Religion Research Network Mid-Term Conference on the theme ‘Religions and Identities in the European Migration Crisis’. Her presentation on ‘Localized human rights and local secularism’ explored the complex role that the redefinition of the government scalarity plays in the governance of religious diversity, specifically investigating the tensions between the municipal, regional and national governments through a focus on Italy.
