Description

This course will examine, from a historical and analytical perspective, the role of religion in the modern state system: its place, its absence, and its recent resurgence.  This class will analize modern theories of international relations, comparing how religion has been treated in the past and how it is addressed today.  It then examines religiously based positions on major moral issues in world politics, as well as selected regional cases of religion and politics in the contemporary international system.
