The Review of Faith & International Affairs is published quarterly by Routledge. It is the first and still only scholarly journal devoted exclusively to analysis and commentary regarding the role of religion—for good or ill—in global affairs. Combining peer-review quality with magazine accessibility, The Review of Faith & International Affairs brings together many of today’s most innovative and distinguished thinkers, making their research and commentaries available not just to specialists but to a wider audience of globally concerned readers.
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.
More than just another specialist academic outlet, IGE strives to make practical research on religion, society, and law accessible and relevant to everyone, especially our international partners and the next generation of religious freedom advocates. Below are examples of research papers and research-based commentaries that IGE has employed as recommended readings in its programs around the world.
