To this end the RC22 undertakes measures: to secure and develop personal and institutional contacts amongst sociologists of religion throughout the world; to encourage the international dissemination and exchange of information on significant developments in the sociology of religion and to promote the development of scientific activities in the sociology world wide; to facilitate and promote international meetings and research in the field of the sociology of religion; to help the non-represented countries to use the RC22 resources and its facilities.
