Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter of the book presents the research problem, the research questions and aims, the conceptual model, the research methods, the sampling method and data collection, the description of the research population. The research problem is explained: the tension between the in-group and out-group and an examination of the problematic relationship between religion and ethnocentrism is explored. The chapter describes two-fold aim, namely: a descriptive aim and an explorative aim. In conceptual model, the chapter also describes the components which are included in our search for the relationships between religion and ethnocentrism. The research method used in this chapter is the quantitative method. The authors utilize questionnaires to gather our data. The design of the questionnaire has been drawn from the study of literatures, existing instruments, and instruments devised specifically for this project. This chapter presents an overview of how the other chapters of the book are organised.
