Religion and International Affairs

Strengthening scholarly and public attention to religion in global perspective

Tahrir Square, February 8, 2011

With support from the Luce Foundation, the SSRC's project on religion and international affairs works to build stronger and more meaningful connections among an interdisciplinary network of scholars engaged in the study of religion in global perspective and to forge new linkages among scholars of religion and a range of actors committed to the rethinking of religion as a vital, complex, and controversial aspect of international affairs. Through workshops, public events, books, and digital publications, the Council seeks to catalyze new agendas for research and to bring expert knowledge about religion and international affairs to bear on pressing issues of public concern.
