Matthias Koenig is a sociologist of law, professor at the University of Göttingen and Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity. He held his talk at the Herrenhausen Conference "Religious Pluralisation - A Challenge for Modern Societies" on October 4-6, 2016, where the challenges of religious pluralization and the contribution to be made by interreligious dialogue in the areas of societal and scientific discourse were discussed. In his talk, he argues that there are two main problems with our standard answer to the question of how to resolve problems arising from religious diversity. First, we too easily overlook the remnants of confessional statehood that are still present in our state structures. And second, we have to pay more attention to the limitations of secular law and to how it operates. How is religious diversity actually governed?
