The International Association for the History of Religions (IAHR)

The European Association for the Study of Religions is a member of the International Association for the History of Religions (IAHR). It became affiliated with the IAHR at the XVIIIth world congress in 2000.

The IAHR seeks to promote the activities of all scholars and affiliates that contribute to the historical, social, and comparative study of religion. As such, the IAHR is the preeminent international forum for the critical, analytical and cross-cultural study of religion, past and present. The IAHR is not a forum for confessional, apologetical, or other similar concerns.

The IAHR is a worldwide body of national and regional associations for the academic study of religion, and is a member of the Conseil International de la Philosophie et des Sciences Humaines/ The International Council for Philosophy and Humanistic Studies (CIPSH) under the auspices of UNESCO.
