The CFR Religion and Foreign Policy (RFP) program advances understanding of the forces shaping international relations through exchange between faith leaders and policymakers. Webinars, a roundtable series, and an annual workshop in New York offer a forum for congregational leaders, seminary heads, scholars of religion, and representatives of faith-based organizations to address global issues. CFR produces a vast array of resources that provide nonpartisan and authoritative analysis to inform the work of religious thinkers and educators and foster dialogue within their communities.

Religion and Foreign Policy Webinars
Led by a CFR expert or faith leader, the Religion and Foreign Policy Webinar series offers members of the religion community access to interreligious conversations on timely issues at the intersection of religion and international affairs. Video recordings of the webinars are available at CFR.org/rfp-calls and on the iTunes podcast channel Religion and Foreign Policy.
