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.
