RELATED PROJECTS

Government Outreach Government Outreach
The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, with support from the Henry Luce Foundation and Georgetown's School of Foreign Service, is working with government learning institutions to improve their professional training offerings in critical areas where religious factors pervade international affairs. The Center's effort to provide resources for the professional training of diplomats, aid workers, and other foreign affairs specialists recognizes that U.S. government representatives are increasingly being called upon to build relationships with religious communities worldwide, but that traditional foreign policy and national security training has not focused on such issues. The program is led by Eric Patterson, a Former White House Fellow, Berkley Center Assistant Director, and Visiting Assistant Professor of Government at Georgetown.

Peacebuilding Practitioners Interview Series Peacebuilding Practitioners Interview Series
We know very little about the role of religion in conflict situations and peacebuilding efforts. Religion intersects with other economic, social, political and other factors in complex ways. And faith communities are often arrayed on different sides of the same issue. In order to learn more about realities on the ground, the Center is carrying out a series of interviews with practitioners, with an initial focus on Africa. During the summer of 2009, two Center research assistants, Ilan Cooper and Jason Klocek, conducted a series of interviews with key figures in South Africa, Mozambique, Rwanda, and Sudan. During the summer of 2010, Center research assistants Consuelo Amat and Christopher O'Connor conducted a series of interviews with key figures in Nigeria and Kenya.
