Abstract / Description

The following questions can be asked about the role of religion in global politics and discussions of its power position: (1) If religion is used as a soft power resource, how can we define it? (2) What are the sources of religious soft power? (3) What are the tools of religious soft power? (4) What are the limits of religious soft power? This Special Issue tries to explain the concept of religious soft power, which is widely used in both academia and policy making processes, and seeks to answer these questions.
