Review: Ingvill Thorson Plesner: Religionspolitikk [Politics of religion]

Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature reviewResearchpeer-review

Ingvill Thorson Plesner of the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights at the University of Oslo has written a fine book on religion and politics in Norway, which is timely, substantial and a pleasure to read for people both inside and outside the field. This Norwegian language book sets out to describe, analyse and discuss the politics of religion and worldviews that Norway currently has and should have in the future, and how the Norwegian state should act in order to be as conducive as possible to this. Norwegian politicians have sought to bring about a coherent policy, and Thorson Plesner rises to the challenge to qualify, both legally and interdisciplinarily, the issues that a thoroughly thought out, coherent, principally sound and well-balanced policy must address.
