Research Projects and Agenda

Gregorio Bettiza’s research projects and publications can be organized in three broad on-going research agendas: (i) Religion, States and Power in Global Politics; (ii) Ideology and International Order; and (iii) Sociology, Theory, and Pedagogy of International Relations (IR)

Research Projects

Religion, States and Power in Global Politics

Bettiza is currently working on a new book project developing the concept of sacred capital to theorize and understand the entanglements between religion, states, and power in global politics today.

Ideology and International Order

Bettiza is developing a second research agenda that connects his interests in religion and civilizations, to wider debates about ideology, illiberalism, and the changing character of international order.
