What significance does religious pluralization have for the political culture in Germany and other selected countries in Europe? Gert Pickel, a sociologist of religion at the University of Leipzig, explored this question based on data from the Bertelsmann Stiftung's 2017 Religion Monitor.

The complete study is only available in German:

"Weltanschauliche Vielfalt und Demokratie. Wie sich religiöse Pluralität auf die politische Kultur auswirkt."
