Religion and Conflict Case Studies

Bosnia. Darfur. Afghanistan. Iraq. Headlines chronicle conflicts infused with religious dynamics. Just as significant, but less visible, are places where religious actors have promoted conflict resolution and peace, as in South Africa, Mozambique, and Colombia. This collection of case studies provides a resource for teachers, students, and policy professionals seeking a deeper understanding of religion’s complex role in conflicts and peacebuilding around the world. Each case looks at religion not in isolation but as it interacts with other domestic and international factors.
