Religious Freedom Project

The Religious Freedom Project (RFP) at Georgetown University's Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs was the nation's only university-based program devoted exclusively to the analysis of religious freedom.

The RFP engaged a team of international scholars to examine and debate the meaning and value of religious liberty and its impact on societal flourishing. Over the course of six years (2011-2016) the project sponsored a series of events, publications, courses, and policy consultations to generate and disseminate knowledge about religious freedom among scholars, policy experts, educators, and the wider public.

Two successor organizations grew out of the project: the Religious Freedom Research Project (2017-2019) and the Religious Freedom Institute, an independent NGO.
