Lecture: »Filial piety in Taiwan’s religious ecology«

Short Summary: The lecture will contrast the value system of the Taiwanese religions vs. those of the migrant live-in caregivers from Indonesia and the Philippines and show how Taiwan’s multi-religious landscape has inoculated its society against religious intolerance.

Professor’s Bio: André Laliberté is Professor of comparative politics at the School of Political Studies and co-director of the Research Chair in Taiwan Studies at the University of Ottawa, Canada, as well as associate researcher at the Groupe Sociétés, Religions et Laïcités in Paris. He is the author of more than 50 articles and book chapters, of which a majority are about religion in Taiwan and China. He has co-edited “The Study of Religion in China” with Stefania Travagnin and “Buddhism in China after Mao” with Ji Zhe and Gareth Fisher. In 2019, he was senior research fellow for the Kolleg-Forschungsgruppe “Multiple Secularities – Beyond the West, Beyond Modernities” in Leipzig, which allowed him to complete a manuscript for a monograph on Buddhist philanthropy and social services of Chinese societies. He is also finishing the co-editing of a book on The Secular State in Asia. His current research interests look into the nexus between religions and the welfare regimes of Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan.
