Symposium on "10 Years of Alevi Religious Education in Austria"


Alevi education in public schools in the European context is a historical and socio-political achievement for Alevis and an important step towards their further recognition. As a rule, Alevi religious education (ARU) not only has an identity-forming function for the pupils, but also for their parents. The event will discuss the developments of the past years in Austria and the associated challenges from the perspective of various actors and academics.

The Chair of Alevi Theological Studies at the Department of Islamic-Theological Studies of the University of Vienna cordially invites you to the symposium "10 Years of Alevi Religious Education in Austria - A Series of Discussions on Developments, Challenges and Recommendations" on 17 November 2023 from 9am to 6pm.

The symposium will take place in cooperation with the research cluster "Religious Education in the Context of Transformation Processes", which is based at the Research Centre "Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society" (RaT).
