LUCE PROJECT ON RELIGION IN GLOBAL CIVIL SOCIETY

2011 REGIONAL WORKSHOP


The Role of Religion in Global Civil Society:
A Focus on South and Southeast Asia


January 15, 2011
Loma Pelona Center
University of California, Santa Barbara

This workshop will focus on South and Southeast Asia.  The goal of the workshop, as with the last one, will be to examine the region as a whole and to highlight the unique situations of individual countries and to the extent possible as many of the various religious influences present within each country.  Panelists will discuss the extensive religious tradition in this region and the various ways religion interacts with humanitarian service delivery efforts. Practitioners will share their real life experiences as they relate to the role religion plays in facilitating or hindering their mission. Academics will present current research and perspectives that can illuminate the influence of religion in the region.

This annual workshop, the second in a series of three Luce Foundation-funded workshops to examine the role of religion in global civil society, will capture material with which to develop resources to infuse the study of religion into the curriculum of graduate programs in global and international studies training students planning to work in the international NGO sector.
