Resilience to persecution. A practical and methodological investigation

The International Institute for Religious Freedom just published the last volume of the International Journal for Religious Freedom: “Responding to Persecution” (Vol 10 Issue 1/2 2017)

Dennis P. Petri contributed to the journal with the article Resilience to persecution: a practical and methodological investigation.

In the article, the author analyzes how religious minorities respond to persecution. The study proposes a novel categorization of the broad array of coping mechanisms religious minorities have at their disposal and develops a “Resilience Assessment Tool” as an instrument to observe the resilience of religious minorities.

In the process, the author evaluates three Latin American cases based on original field research.
