2007 Undergraduate Fellows Report: Religious Advocates: A Force in U.S. Politics?
The 2007 Undergraduate Fellows Program gave a select group of ten Georgetown undergraduates the resources to study the role of religious advocacy groups in United States politics. Under the direction of Professor Clyde Wilcox of the Department of Government, the fellows spent the 2007 academic year defining their research agenda, collecting data on key issues relevant to the field of religious advocacy, and interviewing over 40 prominent religious advocacy organizations around the country. Driven by awareness of the importance of religion to policies, especially as it relates to the 2008 presidential election, the fellows sought to understand the influence of religious advocacy on national politics today. This report provides an overview of their work.
