Grace Davie and Nancy Ammerman, the Coordinating Lead Authors for Chapter 16, have written a column for the October 10th issue of La Croix, a major French newspaper. In the column, entitled “Religions et progrès social,” Drs. Davie and Ammerman discuss the relationship, for good and ill, between religion and social progress in the 21st century. They conclude that any attempt to promote social progress requires careful attention to the complexities and continued importance of religion in society. They also express the hope that initiatives such as the IPSP will allow researchers to work together to address society’s biggest challenges.
