Religion, State & Society is a leading authoritative multidisciplinary journal focusing on the interplay between religion and political and social theory and practice. The aim of the journal is to provide a site for cross-fertilization among disciplines and perspectives on issues of current concern and to set them in their appropriate historical context. The journal encourages a comparative approach, with the intention of examining similarities and differences in the experiences of countries, regions and religions, in stability or in transition.

Religion, State & Society publishes original articles, commissioned reviews and book reviews. Regular special issues, with distinguished Guest Editors, allow in-depth treatment of specific themes, and the Editor welcomes proposals for further special issues or special thematic sections.
