Description

Challenging Assumptions about Religion in International Affairs

Friday, October 26th, 2018

www.FletcherRLD.com


The Fletcher Initiative on Religion, Law & Diplomacy's 4th annual conference will focus on the role of religious literacy in international affairs and is guided by the questions: How can religious literacy help us question assumptions and break new ground on the biggest challenges facing our world today? How does religious literacy factor into U.S. military operations in contexts like Iraq? What are the roles of religious institutions in international climate finance and climate resilience? How does secularism differ across countries and what impact does this have on nationalism, national identity, and diplomacy?

Featuring high-level practitioners and academics from a range of disciplines, the conference will include discussions on U.S. military operations in Iraq, climate financing and resilience in Latin America, nationalism in the U.S., India, and Israel, and a keynote on U.S. religious freedom policy. The conference will also include a lunchtime employer showcase in partnership with the Office of Career Services.
