Abstract

The increasing role of religion in public space must not be equated with an increase in socio-political significance. Analysing the early history of Religious Non-Governmental Organizations (RNGOs) in the context of the UN, Karsten Lehmann argues that the presence of religion in public space can also be the result of a decrease in traditional political influence.
