Abstract [en]

This project concerns the present role of Faith-Based Organisations (FBOs) in matters of social exclusion in cities. Participating countries are: Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, UK, Turkey, Spain and Sweden. A FBO is any organisation that refers directly or indirectly to religion or religious values, and functions as a welfare provider or as a political actor. The central assumption is that FBOs tend to fill the gap left after the supposed withdrawal of the welfare state in several domains of public life, particularly in social welfare and in social protection. At first sight, this looks like a return to the charity of former times, when such associations occupied the fore of social help in many countries. But we might as well witness the beginning of a new type of welfare regime with a stronger focus on local policies and strategies and new interplays between local authorities and civil society organisations.
