Government Outreach

The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs is ready to assist government learning institutions with targeted briefings as well as to improve their professional training offerings in critical areas where religious factors pervade international affairs. The center's effort to provide resources for the professional training of diplomats, aid workers, and other foreign affairs specialists recognizes that US government representatives are increasingly being called upon to build relationships with religious communities worldwide, but that traditional foreign policy and national security training has not focused on such issues. The Government Outreach project has developed and delivered content on religion, foreign policy, and development for the U.S. government and for international organizations. Key curricular resources include case studies, interviews, and film guides. The project is led by Eric Patterson and has received past support from the Henry Luce Foundation and Georgetown's School of Foreign Service.
