The final part of this collection offers some further reflections on the burgeoning cross-disciplinary field of religion and migration studies. Rather than proffering concluding remarks on an area of research which has only recently started to attract concerted scholarly attention, we will tentatively present some thoughts on future directions in which the field may expand. We hope to negotiate a route through the dense intersecting nodes connecting religion and migration to questions revolving around cosmopolitanism and peacebuilding on the one hand, and conflict resolution on the other. In the process, we will point to perspectives and insights offered by writers in this volume, but also open up discussion to important arguments proffered by specialists in related fields. The underlying premise of this final chapter is that further research on religion and migration may be of interest not only for specialists in the social sciences and the humanities, but also for policy makers and international relations professionals.
