Contemporary Case Studies

The SOM student research team is exploring how secularism is portrayed through news sources in nine countries: Algeria, Belgium, France, Lebanon, Morocco, Québec/Canada, Senegal, Switzerland, and Tunisia. Here we share case study reports on different contemporary controversies related to secularism.
