Religion & U.S. Foreign Policy.

By David Buckley, Ph.D., Paul Weber Endowed Chair in Politics, Science & Religion, University of Louisville

Buckley offers brief reflections on distinct approaches to religion in U.S. diplomacy, particularly at the State Department, and the implications they may have for religious tolerance abroad.

His post is the first of 12 prepared for an April 2019 workshop on “Religion, Reverence and Tolerance” organized by the Baker Institute for Public Policy and the Boniuk Institute for Religious Tolerance at Rice University.  Baker Institute Blog:
