The Religious Freedom Project

religious_freedom_programs

The Religious Freedom Research Project (RFRP) is the nation’s only university-based research program devoted exclusively to the analysis of religious freedom, a basic human right restricted in many parts of the world. The RFRP brings together leading scholars and policymakers to examine and debate the evolution of international religious freedom policy and the contributions of religious liberty to the global common good. The project is made possible by a partnership with Baylor University’s Institute for Studies of Religion and the generous support of the Bradley Foundation.

The RFRP is one of two successor organizations to grow out of the Berkley Center’s Religious Freedom Project (2011-2016). The other is the Religious Freedom Institute, an independent NGO.

The partnership between Baylor’s Institute for Studies of Religion and Georgetown University’s Religious  Freedom Research 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 RFRP 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 RFRP 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
