Religion, Development, and the United Nations
ed. Azza Karam
In 2011, the Social Science Research Council (SSRC), the United
Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), and the Interfaith Center of New
York (ICNY) convened a series of consultations that brought together
representatives of various agencies of the United Nations, leaders of
faith-based non-governmental organizations, and academic
researchers working in a number of different disciplines. Each of
these gatherings sought to open a space for reflection and critical
dialogue on religion, peacebuilding, development, gender, and a range
of related issues. This SSRC report summarizes the key questions the
consultations were designed to address, the central outcomes of
these exploratory discussions, and select recommendations for those
working in the field.
