The vulnerability of religious minorities

A literature review


  • Dr. Dennis P. Petri


In this study, I review some of the most relevant theoretical and analytical frameworks in terms of their value to assess the specific vulnerability of religious minorities. My presentation is organized not by discipline but by theme. First, I present a selection of ways to understand the reasons behind the vulnerability of religious minorities. After that, I consider the contributions of conflict theory toward understanding ethno-religious conflict. I conclude that each of these interpretive models offers valuable pieces to address the vulnerability of religious minorities yet fails to detect important threats.
