About the Institute for Global Engagement’s (IGE) Faith & International Affairs Conference Call series – The Faith & International Conference Call series brings together government and religious leaders, policy makers, scholars, and thinkers to educate and inform on issues at the nexus of religion and global affairs. Facilitated by a member of the IGE senior leadership team, calls will include commentary and perspectives from the IGE staff, as well as other notable practitioners and experts. The series offers callers an open and welcoming forum for discussion on critical global issues where religion plays a key role. Conference calls are held on the last Thursday of each month, unless otherwise noted, with 20 minutes of opening statements from the experts, and up to 40 minutes for questions from callers. Audio recordings and supplemental readings are archived and will be made available for download following the conference call on the IGE website’s media library.
