The Effects of Religious Diversity on Spiritual Care: Reflections from the Dutch Correction Facilities

    Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

    Abstract

    This chapter discusses how in the Netherlands, prison chaplaincy
    has developed recently into a multi-faith endeavor. The government
    adopts a pluralist attitude with regard to prison chaplaincy implying
    an adaptation of the legal framework but also a strong reorganization
    of the Muslim community at a national level. The reshaping of the
    prison chaplaincy as multi-faith has also deep implications on the
    perception of religion as an individual preference. The government
    has opened up chaplaincy under clear secular expectations: that of
    gender equality, that of the respect of individual rights, and that of the
    necessity of a professionalization of spiritual care. The authors
    explore the legitimation of spiritual care by the state, by religious or
    worldview traditions and by the detainees themselves. Then, they
    analyze the organizational management of religious diversity.
