About RFP

The Religious Freedom Project (RFP) at Georgetown University's Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs began in January 2011 with the generous support of the John Templeton Foundation. The RFP is the nation’s only university-based program devoted exclusively to the analysis of religious freedom, a basic human right restricted in many parts of the world. Our team of interdisciplinary scholars examines different understandings of religious liberty as it relates to other fundamental freedoms; its importance for democracy; and its role in social and economic development, international diplomacy, and the struggle against violent religious extremism. Our target audiences are the academy, the media, policymakers, and the general public, both here and abroad. For more information about the RFP's research, teaching, publications, conferences, and workshops, we invite you to explore our website.
