Faith and the Global Agenda

From 2007 to 2010 the Berkley Center collaborated with the Geneva-based World Economic Forum (WEF) on a series of publications on religion in world affairs. A first report on "Islam and the West: Annual Report on the State of Dialogue" was released at the WEF annual meeting in Davos in January 2008. A follow-up publication on "Faith and the Global Agenda: Values for the Post-Crisis Economy" was published at the January 2010 Davos WEF meeting. Each publication included a series of essays by leading public figures, original public opinion data, and an overview of key issue areas; the wide range of topics discussed includes economics, globalization, education, intercultural and interreligious dialogue, and climate change. Berkley Center Director Thomas Banchoff served on the World Economic Forum's Global Agenda Council on Faith from 2008 to 2010.
