2022 Religion and Foreign Policy Workshop

Tuesday and Wednesday, May 17–18, 2022

The 2022 Religion and Foreign Policy Workshop is part of the CFR Religion and Foreign Policy program. The goal of the workshop is to advance understanding of the forces shaping international relations and provide members of the religion community with a forum to discuss issues with colleagues and experts in order to better inform their networks. Held on an annual basis since 2007, this event brings together clergy, seminary heads, scholars of religion, and representatives of faith-based organizations from across the country for discussions on global concerns with policymakers, CFR fellows, and other experts. 

The full agenda is available here.

This workshop was made possible in part through the generosity of the Ford Foundation.
