Location: Berkley Center Third Floor Conference Room Map

Faith-inspired actors have long played critical roles in global development; however, their contributions can often be overlooked or viewed with suspicion. The Philippines is a deeply religious society where faith permeates social, economic, and political institutions. Religious actors are thus deeply engaged in development, from debates and ideas about priorities and methods to politics and on-the-ground implementation.

This event marked the release of the "Faith and Development in Focus: Philippines" report, which provides an overview of the Philippines' religious landscape in relation to major development issues. Supported by the International Partnership on Religion and Sustainable Development (PaRD), the report is part of a broad effort to explore these questions in the context of four countries. Project researchers and experts in the field discussed the findings of the report. 

Lunch was served.

This event was co-sponsored by the World Faiths Development Dialogue, the US-Philippines Society, and Georgetown University's Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, Asian Studies Program, and Global Human Development Program.
