ENER, The European Network on the Economics of Religion

mercredi 12 décembre 2007

ENER - The European Network on the Economics of Religion - is a no-cost and informal network of mainly Europe based researchers interested in and working on the Economics of Religion. ENER aims to bring together the rather scattered knoweldge of the European issues of the Economics of Religion. ENER aims to promote the Economics of Religion. ENER provides a platform for communication and exchange for interested researchers.
Members of the Scientific committee are Guido Heineck (University of Erlangen-Nuremberg), Shoshana Neuman (Bar Ilan University), and David Voas (University of Manchester).
Its first workshop was held in Granadqa (Spain), on November 16-17, 2007. Surveys of this workshop will be published on this site very soon.

The Economics of Religion uses economic theory and methods to analyze and explain religious behavior and its outcomes.
It can roughly be divided into three major lines of inquiry :
Analysis of religious behavior from an economic perspective, i.e. applying microeconomic theory and techniques to explain patterns of religious behavior among individuals, groups and cultures ;
Analysis of the economic consequences of religions or religious behavior, and
A strand wich might be called ’Religious economics’, i.e. the analysis and critique of economic theory and policies from a theological point of view.
