        Abstract

This essay introduces the Special Issue of the Journal. It discusses how changing
religious demographics and heightened  religious plurality are challenging exist-
ing thinking about, and patterns of, state-religion relations and the nature of the
'secular state'. The essay briefly surveys each of the papers in the Special Issue and
highlights that one of the key lessons that emerges from the papers is the importance
of context. As the contexts evolve, fresh thinking and new arrangements would be
needed.
