This report summarises the findings of a literature review and mixed method empirical study undertaken between May - August 2014. Over 170 people living in the west of Scotland contributed their experience and thoughts on intra-Christian sectarianism in contemporary Scotland. This research was produced by, West Of Scotland Regional Equality Council who received funding from the Voluntary Action Fund on behalf of the Scottish Government.

The focus of the study is generational change, therefore contribution from a range of ages as well as religious experience was included. The core questions informing discussion focus on definitions of sectarianism, how and where it is manifest, how it affects individual life choices and how the experience has changed over time.
