Policy Briefs

The role of religion in public life is often a polarizing subject. Too few balanced, nonpartisan resources are available in this sensitive area. To help meet this need, the Institute for Global Engagement commissions policy briefs, task force reports, and other occasional papers examining the peril and promise of religion in contemporary world issues.


Scholarship on religion and international affairs continues to expand, and many universities are offering courses discussing religion’s role in politics. IGE offers a selection of syllabi from universities in the U.S. and abroad.
