Religion, Poverty and Social Justice

Religion is an important part of most, if not all, societies and cultures around the globe. It plays a vital role in people’s understanding and interpretation of who they are and why the world is ordered in the way it is. Religion, however, has not been taken seriously enough in the academic approaches to poverty-issues, neither as constituting a part of cultures and people’s lives, nor as a field of study in relationship to social justice.
