International Religious Freedom: Politics and Policies (Engage the Speaker AU2021)
Engage the Speaker Session for “International Religious Freedom: Politics and Policies” (AU2021). Original Lecture description below.
How and why does the US government promote religious freedom abroad? Is it in America’s interest, or is it just American values? And what are the internal politics of the policy debate? This course will draw not only on the presenter’s experience as a political scientist but also as a former chairman of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom.
