This webinar conference, entitled ‘Understanding Christian Far-Right Extremism’, aimed to provide participants with a better understanding of this form of ideology. The discussion approached this matter from multiple angles, including theology, religious studies, conspiracy theory studies, and political science.

Most of his teaching is focused on aspects of inter-religious dialogue, between Christianity and Islam. He also teaches aspects of Christian theology, ethics, and cultural studies.  Following the webinar, Dr Slater commented:

“I was delighted to have the opportunity to take part in this webinar and would like to thank the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies for inviting me to take part.   

It was an excellent discussion where we had an opportunity to dig deeper into some key issues that are important to understanding Christian Far-Right Extremism, their groups, rationales, and justifications as they relate to religion and within wider far-right worldviews.”
