The Role of Religion in Foreign Policy
Friday, November 16, 2012 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (CST)
Join the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and Tony Blair Faith Foundation for a conversation on “The Role of Religion in Foreign Policy.” The panel discussion will feature experts in religion and foreign policy, including Ed Husain, senior fellow in Middle Eastern studies at CFR, Katrina Lantos Swett, chair of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, and Monica Duffy Toft, professor at Oxford University’s Blavatnik Shool of Government. Timothy Morgan, deputy managing editor at Christianity Today, will moderate. The panelists will draw upon their own experience to discuss the role that religion plays in shaping foreign policy and will take questions from the audience.
CFR’s Religion and Foreign Policy Initiative seeks to connect with, and serve as a resource for, religious and congregational leaders, scholars, and thinkers whose voices are increasingly important to the national foreign policy debate. The Tony Blair Faith Foundation aims to promote respect and understanding about the world's major religions and shows how religious faith can be part of the solution to global challenges. It informs, educates, and inspires how religion motivates the world today.
Please arrive at Room W192 by 4:00 p.m.
