Symposium to Feature Archbishop Charles Chaput and Imam Feisal Rauf
February 23, 2011
Georgetown University will bring together leading scholars and practitioners for a day-long symposium titled "Religion in American Politics and Society: A Model for Other Countries?" Panelists will discuss Jewish, Muslim, and Christian perspectives on whether the dominant American approach to religion, society, and the state is worthy of emulation in other countries. They will consider policy implications both for the American future and for U.S. efforts to promote religious freedom and democracy worldwide. The conference will explore global controversies about international norms, national self-determination, proselytism, and the rights of religious communities.
