Georgetown’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, & World Affairs has recently released the latest of a series of five reports on the landscape of “faith-inspired organizations” working in development. In the past, the development world has been wary of working with religious groups and has often turned a blind eye to the influence of religion in the cultures in which they work, but the report investigates the growing nexus of religious actors and development efforts in Southeast Asia. Past reports have explored the same theme in the contexts of Latin America, Europe, Africa, North America, and the Muslim World. The project is overseen by Katherine Marshall, co-chair of the SSRC’s Advisory Committee on Religion and International Affairs and contributor to the forthcoming Religion and World Affairs Handbook, a product of the SSRC’s past work in this area.
