Many American policy makers are squeamish about religion’s role in diplomacy. Nevertheless, religion plays a crucial and complex part in global affairs, such as in sustainable development, various human rights issues, and fomenting and mitigating conflict. Shaun A. Casey, the founding director of the US Department of State’s Office of Religion and Global Affairs, makes a compelling case for the necessity of understanding global religion in "Chasing the Devil at Foggy Bottom."
Join us for a book launch with Shaun Casey for a deeper discussion of religion in global politics. A reception will follow.
This event is coordinated by the Kroc Institute’s Contending Modernities initiative.
