dc.description.abstractTo mark our six-year partnership with the John Templeton Foundation, the Religious Freedom Project hosted this capstone conference to explore the wide-ranging political, economic, and social dimensions of religious freedom and their enduring impact on the global common good. The RFP’s 13 associate scholars and other experts from across the academy addressed a range of crucial issues about the broader implications of religious freedom. Participants brought different perspectives to bear on the following key questions: To what extent is religious liberty critical for human flourishing? When and how does it contribute to economic prosperity, democratization, and peace? What challenges face religious communities living under repressive governments or hostile social forces? How is the persecution of religion related to other infringements of basic human rights? What is the relationship between religious freedom and violent religious extremism, and is there a role for religious freedom in efforts to undermine radicalization and counter violent religious extremism and terrorism over the long term? We were honored to host Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE), who delivered a major address, his first at Georgetown University, on the promotion of international religious freedom as an urgent global imperative.en-US
