Religion and International Relations: Normative Issues

May 22, 2013

Timothy Shah contributed the chapter, "Religion and International Relations: Normative Issues" to the report, "Religion and International Relations: A Primer for Research." This chapter takes a look at religion's hand in creating the moral, legal, and cultural background for the norms that shape international relations, reaching back to the Westphalian system of sovereign states as a defining feature of the modern order. This publication, featuring contributors from leading universities, was published by the Mellon Initiative on Religion Across the Disciplines of the University of Notre Dame.
