The Berkley Center’s Future of Political Theologies project maps and analyzes historic and contemporary understandings of political engagement across Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. The Berkley Center project engages political theologies not merely as a set of theoretical concepts, but as religious beliefs and principles that ground political action within contemporary geo-political struggles. The Project brings together leading thinkers and practitioners within each tradition – as well as secular counterparts – to examine the contested intersection between religious conviction and the political arena.

What Do I Owe You is a year-long multi-media project seeking to understand how an individuals who are enmeshed in a global economy and have daily interactions across diverse cultures and religions mold their views about what they owe each other.

Project creator and producer Lucas Stratmann graduated from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service in May 2012 and was a Berkley Center Undergraduate Fellow on the "Business, Values, and Law: Forging a New Dialogue" project.
