Project Description

Research and overview of key religious communities and actors in Argentina, with a focus on creating an “encyclopedia” of organizations and leaders of each major faith (Jewish, Catholic, Muslim) and their political connections. Also information on smaller faith communities (Baha’i, for example). Emphasis on trend lines in the growing population of evangelicals in the country, and how Argentina compares with others in Latin America. Focus on statistical population data and creating a national-level map that spotlights the presence of different communities throughout the country. -- The study should also include migration analysis, with information that shows how different migrant communities, particularly non Catholic Christians, emigrated to Argentina and why.
