Wednesday, April 20th, 2011, 12pm
1302 International Affairs Building 420 W. 118th Street
A book launch and panel discussion of Religion and International Relations Theory with editor Jack Snyder (Political Science, Columbia); contributor Elizabeth Shakman Hurd (Luce Visiting Fellow, Princeton); Michael Doyle (Political Science, Columbia); and Courtney Bender (Religion, Columbia).
Religious concerns stand at the center of international politics, yet key paradigms in international relations—realism, liberalism, and constructivism—barely consider religion in their analysis of political subjects. The essays in this volume rectify this; they introduce models that integrate religion into the study of international politics and connect religion to a rising form of populist politics in the developing world.
Registration is encouraged. Please register here.
Religion and International Relations Theory is the second volume in the publication series by Columbia University Press and the Institute for Religion, Culture and Public Life. The event is co-sponsored by the Institute for Religion, Culture, and Public Life the Center for the Study of Democracy, Toleration, and Religion.
