The vulnerability of religious minorities. A literature review

Dennis P. Petri contributed to the International Journal for Religious Freedom with the article The vulnerability of religious minorities. A literature review (IJRF Vol 11:1/2 2018 (15–30)).

In the article, the author reviews some of the most relevant theoretical and analytical frameworks in terms of their value to assess the specific vulnerability of religious minorities.

First, he presents a selection of ways to understand the reasons behind the vulnerability of religious minorities. After that, he considers the contributions of conflict theory toward understanding ethno-religious conflict.

He finally concludes that each of these interpretive models offers valuable pieces to address the vulnerability of religious minorities yet fails to detect important threats.
