In keeping with the Institute for Global Engagement's philosophy of robust (not merely relativistic) pluralism, CFIA provides a lively forum open to diverse voices—from the decidedly secular to the devoutly religious. In addition to its flagship quarterly journal, The Review of Faith & International Affairs, CFIA programs include research projects, conferences, lectures, books, monographs, briefs, and fellowships.
CFIA's recent publications and activities include:
Muslims and a Harmonious Society is a collection of papers stemming from a three-part conference series on Muslim minorities in western China. The collection's publication was sponsored by the Ethnic Minority Group Development Research Institute within the Development Research Center of China's State Council and IGE's Center on Faith & International Affairs.
This report reviews current U.S. international religious freedom policy and offers detailed recommendations for improving it, with particular attention given to democracy promotion, public diplomacy, counterterrorism, and international law.
The Center on Faith & International Affairs announces the release of Pakistan's Islamist Frontier: Islamic Politics and U.S. Policy in Pakistan's North-West Frontier, first in CFIA's new Religion & Security Monograph Series.
