Guatemala: Religion and Policy Intertwined
August 31, 2017
Religious institutions and beliefs play especially significant roles for Guatemala’s people. These roles are unusually complex, intertwined with ethnic identities, social and economic divides, and Guatemala’s fraught political landscape. The task of bridging Guatemala’s deep divides cries out for stronger religious leadership. This publication is a continuation of the Country-Level Mapping project, which aims to explore religious dynamics and the development activities of faith-inspired actors. The brief draws from the report Faith and Development in Focus: Guatemala to provide an overview of Guatemala's religious communities and highlights the contributions of faith-inspired development.
