Abstract:The Goethe-Institut Accra (Ghana), in cooperation wit the Accra Daily Mail, organized an international conference on conflict and religion in October 2003.

The chapters are grouped in eight parts: Opening - Religion and dialogue (Gunnar Weimann)- Religion, tradition and ethnicity (contributions by Nana Kobina Nketsia V, Yacouba Konaté (on Côte d'Ivoire), Jahman Anikulapo, Stefan Weider) - Human rights and religion (Penda Mbow, Emile Francis Short, Mohammed Habib, Charles G. Palmer-Buckle) - Islam and Christianity in post-colonial West Africa (Mahmoud M. Gedel (on Ghana), Mensa Otabil) - Sharia and secular constitution (Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, Franz Kogelmann) - Relation between State/politics and religion (Sheikh I.C. Quaye, Georg Brunold, Peter K. Sarpong, Lazare M. Poamé (on Côte d'Ivoire)) - Educational systems and the influence of religion (George P. Hagan, Maulvi A. Wahab Adam, James Ebo Whyte & Joe Luis Pels). [ASC Leiden abstract]
