Religion at the European Parliament


RelEPis an international research project that investigates the religious beliefs and preferences of the members of the European Parliament (MEPs). A second wave of the survey (2020-2022) has been launched after a first wave achieved during the term 2019-2014  (Researchgate_Religion_at_the_European_Parliament_overview).

In particular, RelEPaims at answering at the followi ng questions: Are European elites more secularized than EU citizens and national politicians? Which effects does religion have on the political socialization of MEPs (cross-party structures, religious lobbies) and, conversely, what is the EP’s influence on religion? How do religion, coalition- and decision-making interact at t at the European level? What happens in the triangular relationship between nation, Europe, and religion?
