RELATED RESOURCES ON HUMAN RIGHTS
Henry R. Luce Initiative on Religion and International Affairs
Announced in 2005, the Luce Foundation's Henry R. Luce Initiative on Religion and International Affairs seeks to deepen American understanding of religion as a critical but often neglected factor in international policy issues, despite growing awareness of religion as a potent cultural, political, and economic force in societies around the globe on issues ranging from development and democracy to health and human rights. To this end, the initiative funds a competitive grants program in support of academic proposals for the study of religion and politics, as well as a project grants program that provides existing academic, public policy, and media institutions with additional financial resources. The website does not provide actual resource content, but it does provide information about the various projects that it funds and grant application procedures. Georgetown University's Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service received Religion and International Affairs grants in 2006 and 2008.
