The European Project of Interreligious Learning (EPIL): A 'good practice"in inclusive and interreligious education.

Research output: Contribution to JournalSpecial issue (editing)Academicpeer-review

Abstract

The article sets out the results of thorough exploratory descriptive research carried out between October 2015 and March 2018, examining what the European Project of Interreligious Learning (EPIL) is, and what it is meant to be. The main objective of the authors is to investigate and discuss whether EPIL Course IV can be considered as ‘good practice in (inter)religious education’. To what extent have the EPIL goals, directed towards inclusive pluralism and social sustainability, been reached? On the social level most respondents say that they are satisfied with the new contacts they have made through EPIL. Most women state that their appreciation for people with different religions and life-views has increased. For example, through the stories of war victims in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Some proposals for improvement were mentioned. For example to put more focus on the differences, because those are usually what is discussed and noticed in daily life. And also that running into tensions and frustrations can have a positive effect; it can deepen the insight and the relationship, clear the air and give new insights and visions that otherwise would not have been discussed. Also some ideas as to transferring the project to other times and places are discussed.
