The Influence of Local Ecologies on Interfaith Work, By Mark M. McCormack, Hasina A. Mohyuddin, and Paul R. Dokecki

Recent interfaith scholarship has noted the influence of non-religious identities and other external ecological factors on the participation and experiences of individuals in interfaith work. This study builds on this recent literature to examine the mesosystemic factors, and the interfaith participant’s faith community in particular, as they influence interfaith participation. Utilizing case study interviews, we consider the experiences of immigrant/minority faith community members in interfaith work as contrasted with the experiences of non-immigrant/majority faith community members. Implications of this research for interfaith practice will briefly be considered.
