FGI Summer Courses
The Tony Blair Faith Foundation in collaboration with its partner universities, runs intensive summer courses for students and professionals, providing focused training on the interaction between religion and foreign policy.
Many of the most difficult foreign policy challenges facing countries across the world relate to the role of religion in political and social affairs. Through a combined theoretical and empirical approach, the courses equipped diplomats, professionals and students with the critical understanding they require to tackle conceptual and practical challenges at the intersection of religion and foreign policy practice. We offered two courses this year:
Religion and Foreign Policy: Investigating Religious Minorities and Human Rights
This course was offered at McGill University, Canada. See what participants had to say on twitter using #RFPcourse, or checking out all of the course tweets below.
Religion and Foreign Policy: Investigating the Role of Religion in Conflict and Post-conflict Societies
This course was offered in Prishtina, Kosovo. The above video summarizes what took place.
