The published papers of a conference held on religion and conflict in Accra 2003, with particular reference to West Africa. The book is organised into sections on religion and dialogue; religion, tradition and ethnicity; human rights and religion; Islam and Christianity in post-colonial West Africa; Sharia and secular constitution; relations between state politics and religion; and educational systems and the influence of religion. The contributors come from both religious and secular perspectives, assuming a variety of positions. They variously argue for intercultural dialogue; the re-emergence of African spirituality; the conscious adoption of Africanist intellectual positions; and understanding religion as an aspect of the ethnicisation of politics. Further papers consider the possibility of the co-existence of Sharia and secular constitutions.
