The Mighty and the Almighty: Religion's Role in International Affairs
A dialogue between former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Professor Susan Thistlethwaite
Given the increasing role of religion in international affairs, how should the U.S. government relate to religious communities and factor religious issues into policymaking? Is it time for the traditional secularization of foreign policy to be rethought? How do the religious convictions of policymakers factor into decision-making?
These and other issues will be explored through dialogue between former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright and Prof. Thistlethwaite in the context of Secretary Albright's new book, The Mighty and the Almighty: Reflections on America, God, and World Affairs.
