Religious institutions play diverse and often poorly understood roles in world affairs, even though many were among the first organizations to gain a global reach. A new book by Katherine Marshall, Global Institutions of Religion: Ancient Movers, Modern Shakers (2013), fills a gap in current literature by examining the wide range of bodies that govern and coordinate religious communities, their relations with other transnational institutions, and their role in the world today.
Marshall discussed her latest book in the context of her career as a practitioner and scholar, and she offered thoughts on the religious dimensions of issues such as human rights, human security, climate change, international development, and humanitarian relief.
