Current Research

My current research pertains to the question of religion and democracy in the recent work of Jürgen Habermas. My thesis addresses problems related to the political integration of religious citizens in contemporary liberal democracies and to the preservation of cultural resources under modern conditions of pluralism. It examines these with an eye both to normative political theory and to various sociological considerations..
