Brazil - a modern but religious country : A case study of Brazil based on the theory of secularisation and religiosity by Pippa Norris and Ronald Inglehart (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine the religious landscape of Brazil, and based on the theory of secularization by Pippa Norris and Ronald Inglehart to explain why Brazilians are religious and not secular. The study is a secondary analysis that uses existing statistics to examine different units of analysis of Brazil’s religious landscape, economics and equality, etc. Based on their theory I find that Brazil is still religious due to the lack of security in the country. Brazil is insecure in terms of measures of socioeconomic equality, stable politics without corruption, and physical safety of the citizens in Brazil. The theory of Norris and Inglehart is applicable to Brazil and the study shows that their theory is plausible.
