Theorizing Religion, Peacebuilding, and Development

Social Science Research Council

In conjunction with the SSRC's ongoing work on religion and international affairs, this workshop convened a select group of interdisciplinary scholars for a two-day workshop. Aimed at establishing the theoretical links between religious beliefs, rites, and actors, and peacebuilding and development efforts abroad, the discussion also examined links and discrepancies between the distinct actors and ideologies, both secular and religious, dedicated to peacebuilding and development practices throughout the world.
