Religion, Peacebuilding, and Development: Cambodia and Kenya

March 4- 5, 2011
Location: Berkley Center Third Floor Conference Room

The challenge of lasting peace is tightly linked to hope for a better future and thus to development. Religion plays vital roles, but these are rarely explored in a systematic way. A workshop on the complex intersections among religion, development, and peacebuilding at the Berkley Center took on this challenge. The meeting was part of a Social Science Research Council project, supported by the Henry R. Luce Foundation. With a steering group co-chaired by Scott Appleby, Al Stepan, and Katherine Marshall, a series of workshops is examining different facets of the challenge. This event focused particularly on the roles of religious actors and institutions in development and peace in Kenya and Cambodia.
