Religion and Diplomacy: The New Nexus in American Foreign Policy
This executive education conference, sponsored by the Global Politics and Religion Initiative in the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, looked at the lack of tools international organizations, governments, and actors currently have in dealing with the rising influence of religion on global situations. The conference sought to move away from existing frameworks to new rational and constructive structures. Speakers included Paul Miller from Catholic Relief Services and Eric Patterson and Jocelyne Cesari from the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs. The program was supported by the Henry R. Luce Foundation.
