    Orthodox Christianity and Humanitarianism

    Orthodox Christianity and Humanitarianism

    Volume 14 , No. 1, Spring 2016

    Orthodox Christians worldwide are part of the analytical, operational, ethical, and empirical debates and discussions of humanitarianism. Yet, there is a significant lacuna regarding Orthodox Christianity in the emerging literature on religion and humanitarianism. As response to this gap in the scholarly and policy literatures, a colloquium brought together practitioners and scholars in the spring of 2015 to explore the theological resources and institutional experiences of Orthodox Christianity in comparative contexts and cases of humanitarianism. Select papers are published as a special package in the spring 2016 issue of The Review of Faith & International Affairs.

    RFIA Fall 2015 Issue

    Volume 13, No. 3, Fall 2015

    UNICEF estimates that 140 million girls will marry early (under the age of 18) in the next decade. Especially when marriage takes place very early (well below the age of 18), it profoundly affects a girl’s life through lowering her education and earnings prospects, and increasing the risk of health complications, psychological problems, and intimate partner violence. The Fall 2015 issue of The Review of Faith & International Affairs is a theme issue examining the causes of child marriage and effective responses. Via a partnership with the World Bank, this issue is entirely free online (open-access).

    The summer 2015 issue of The Review of Faith & International Affairs features rigorous yet accessible research and analysis on several timely topics.

Other topics addressed in this issue include terrorist mobilization in the Chechen and Uighur cases (Sarah Cornelison), religious engagement and Italian foreign policy (Fabio Petito and Scott Thomas), the Arab Spring and the “Shiite Crescent” (Cenap Cakmak), religion and reproductive health in Ghana (Jill Olivier and Quentin Wodon), and embezzlement in the global Christian community (Todd Johnson et al).
