Abstract

'Finding Faith in Foreign Policy' comprehensively investigates how American foreign policymakers have come to think about, engage with, and manage religion in world politics across a range of domains since the end of the Cold War and in the aftermath of 9/11. Gregorio Bettiza develops an original theoretical framework and draws upon extensive empirical research and interviews in order to explain policymakers' attempts to promote international religious freedom, deliver aid through faith-based channels, fight terrorism by supporting moderate Muslims and Islam, and engaging religious actors for the purposes of resolving conflicts and finding solutions to current world crises.
