International Relations, Security and Religion

The Group aims to attract scholars and practitioners working on different dimensions of religion and security across the world, to encourage dialogue and a sharing of knowledge and ideas and further research. In so doing, it seeks to develop a credible and separate identity for the subject of International Relations, Security and Religion in order to provoke interest and raise awareness and understanding amongst academics and policy makers of the relationship between religions and international relations and security.

The BISA 'Working Group on International Relations, Security and Religion' was formed in 2007. Its launch reflects the growing interest in religion as a component of international relations. We hope to support and promote research in this field and become an effective resource for the academic community, policy makers, the armed forces, NGOs and faith based groups engaged in multi-faith dialogue.

If you would like to become a member of this group, please contact the convenor.
