Report of the Symposium on Faith-Inspired Organizations and Global Development Policy: U.S. and International Perspectives
This report documents a symposium that featured both leading representatives of faith-based NGOs and policy analysts and focused its discussion on mobilizing public support, collaborating with national governments and international institutions, and implementing policy on the ground. The report follows the event's emphasis on US-based NGOs that interact with national governments and international organizations across a range of issue areas, including education, healthcare, gender, humanitarian relief, microfinance, and the environment. Throughout the report, panelist statements explore the specific tensions around ethical and practical considerations centered on the proper relationship with public authorities and the special nature of the connection between faith, poverty, and social justice.
