Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the nature of religiosity among young people in Australia and Thailand. In so doing, it reflects on how the nature of religiosity relates to the broader cultural landscape. The chapter argues that the forms that religion takes reflects not only that broader cultural framework, but the ways that specific religions interact with the social and cultural framework. The chapter describes religion among young people in Australia and Thailand through a description of beliefs and practices, mostly as described by the comparative surveys described here. The beliefs provide an entry into young people's cosmology. The practices give an indication of what religious faith looks like in terms of behavior. The surveys and interviews found that not many young Australians were strongly opposed to religion. In Thailand, religion has not become privatized in quite the same way.
