Faith and Fragile States: Political Stability and Religious Freedom

Faith and Fragile States: Political Stability and Religious Freedom

Date: Friday, July 27, 2018 / Time: 11:00am - 2:30pm

Religion influences both peace and conflict worldwide. Violent extremism is often framed in religious terms, and religious discrimination continues to increase as both a driver and symptom of conflict. But, religion drives peace and coexistence as well and religious actors are essential for advancing religious freedom. Efforts to engage religious actors in countering violent extremism (CVE) and interfaith peacebuilding must take this dichotomy into account.
