The Religious Freedom Project

religious_freedom_programs

The Religious Freedom Project (RFP) is the nation’s only university-based program devoted exclusively to the analysis of religious freedom, a basic human right restricted in many parts of the world. The RFP engages a team of international scholars to examine and debate the meaning and value of religious liberty; its importance for democracy; and its role in social and economic development, international diplomacy, and the struggle against violent religious extremism. The Religious Freedom Project at Georgetown University is a partnership with Baylor University’s Institute for Studies of Religion and is made possible by the generous support of the John Templeton Foundation.

The partnership between Baylor’s Institute for Studies of Religion and Georgetown University’s Religious Freedom Project enables both to universities to come together in a catalytic way to address timely and important research projects that seek to advance the cause of religious freedom here in the United States and around world.

The Georgetown-Baylor RFP serves as a vehicle for undergraduate and graduate students interested in pursuing theses, dissertations, or even internships related to religious liberty and freedom.  Additionally, the Georgetown-Baylor RFP should enhance the possibility of receiving external funding for cutting-edge research on religious freedom.

Thus far, the joint venture has organized several major events.  For more about these events, CLICK HERE
