Religious Pluralism, Globalization, and World Politics
November 26, 2008
This book explores how globalization has transformed the relationship between religious communities and contemporary policy challenges. Communications technologies have enabled the formation of stronger transnational religious identities, while the emergence of a global human rights regime has created more space for religious engagement across multiple issue areas. The volume brings together leading scholars including Kwame Anthony Appiah, R. Scott Appleby, Jean Bethke Elshtain, Katherine Marshal, and John Witte to explore the practical and theoretical implications of that engagement across issues including international development, transitional justice, and religious freedom.
