Thomas Farr, a Contributing Editor on The Review of Faith & International Affairs, will host a Berkley Center symposium at Georgetown University on November 3, 2009 titled “Religion & Democracy in the Foreign Policy of the Obama Administration.” The day-long event will consist of four panels, each of which will examine the question of religion and democracy in U.S. foreign policy from a different perspective. The panels will address the role of religious actors in U.S. democracy programs and policies; the “twin tolerations” and democratic stability in highly religious societies; emerging trends in the data concerning the relationships between religion and democracy; and the relationship between Islam and democracy in key Muslim countries.
