Democracy, Identity, Culture

ELIAMEP is a budding hub for research on issues related to culture, identity and religion – all of which are deeply interconnected with politics in Greece, the Balkans, and undoubtedly in Europe and the world. 

 ELIAMEP has hosted a series of projects regarding Christian-Muslim relations, religious freedom in majority Orthodox countries (PLUREL), and religious freedom at the European Court of Human Rights (GRASSROOTSMOBILISE) 

Its topical ambit has further expanded to include questions of cultural heritage in relation to identity and politics (REPLICIAS).
