Programs: The Institute on Religion and Public Policy conducts research on issues relating to religion and public policy in both the domestic and international policy arenas. The Institute sponsors lectures and conferences, as well as publishes books and other materials, to exchange and appropriate ideas on the importance of remaining active in and aware of the ever-developing relationship between religion and public policy. The Institute on Religion and Public Policy also provides leadership in motivating public interest and action in areas of concern to the religious and public policy communities.

The Institute on Religion and Public Policy works globally with government policymakers, religious leaders, business executives, academics, non-governmental organizations, and others in order to further and develop relationships among these parties. The Institute encourages and assists these groups to work together effectively and cooperatively on issues of common concern.

Within the vast expanse of human understanding and experience, every element of a human being s life anywhere in the world is, in one way or another, affected by religion and public policy. As religion scholar Dr. Martin E. Marty has commented, religion and politics inevitably intersect . Politics, by dealing with proposals for the common good, inevitably touches on people s basic ideas about what is most important in life. For most Americans, this means drawing religious understandings of reality and human purpose. From Christian to Muslim to Jew to atheist, and every faith in between, we are all influenced by a personal acceptance or rejection of religious principles, and by the decisions, dictates, and functioning of government. Instead of competition, conflict, and ill will, which often develop, these most two fundamental elements in the daily lives of human beings should be in cooperation and dialogue. The Institute on Religion and Public Policy is building bridges between religion and policy to advance a more constructive, peaceful future.
