In 1994, Religion, The Missing Dimension of Statecraft broke new ground by exploring the role of religion in political theory and development and considering the implications for both the foreign policy and religious communities. The book provided cases ranging from post-World War II Franco-German reconciliation to the end of apartheid in South Africa and the role of the Philippine Catholic Church in the 1986 revolution.
This event celebrated the twentieth anniversary of this influential book and examined its continuing legacy amid turbulent world events. Dr. Douglas Johnston, president of the International Center for Religion and Diplomacy and the book's co-editor, discussed the book. Berkley Center research fellow Eric Patterson moderated the discussion.
