Religion and Social Responsibility

 
Call for Papers for the December Special Issue on Religion and Social Responsibility.

Summary
In the context of the current endemic corruption, competition for (scarce) resources, service delivery protests, and socio-political violence in sub-Saharan Africa, this topic seeks to address the ways and means through which religious systems, movements and organizations address, intervene, mediate, criticise or collaborate with these forces. The main rationale for this is that the diverse religions and religious organizations in sub-Saharan Africa should seek to promote responsive (religious and political) leadership, accountable governance and responsible citizenship.

Editors: J.A. Smit, L. Siwila and D. Chetty
