Résumé des présentations  :

Contrary to widespread theories of increasingsecularization, Stan and Turcescu argue that in most of thesecountries, the populations have shown themselves to remain religious even as they embrace modernization and democratization.Church-state relations in the new EU member states can be seen inpolitical representation for church leaders, governmental subsidies, registration of religions by the state, and religious instruction in public schools. Stan and Turcescu outline three major models : theCzech church-state separation model, in which religion is private and the government secular ; the pluralist model of Hungary, Bulgaria and Latvia, which views society as a group of complementary but autonomous spheres - for example, education, the family, and religion - each of which is worthy of recognition and support from the state ; and the dominant religion model that exists in Poland, Romania, Estonia, and Lithuania, in which the government maintains informal ties to the religious majority.

Church, State, and Democracy in Expanding Europe offers critical tools for understanding church-state relations in an increasingly modern and democratic Eastern Europe.
