Abstract: This working paper presents three perspectives on the ways in which a labeling of social actors, processes, or conflicts as ‘religion’ or ‘religious’ plays a central role in disputes about migration and identity-formation in contemporary Europe. From the perspective of world society theory, the examples discussed here could be interpreted in regard to the concept of ‘responsivity’, i.e. responses inside a particular function system like religion to expectations and developments in other societal functions systems.
