INAF 481 - Religion,Justice&Amer.Natl.Sec
 Since the early days of the Republic religion – both here and abroad –has had a significant impact on American understandings of the nation’s role in the world. This course will study the impact of religion on U.S. foreign policy and American understandings of justice and national security. Part One will examine how views of religion in the modern West, the American founding, and U.S. history have influenced the nation’s conduct of foreign affairs. Part Two will explore selected topics in American religion and foreign policy, including U.S. missionary movements and the problem of proselytism, trafficking in persons, human rights and religious freedom. Part Three will turn to religion in the international order and how it affects America’s responses to the major foreign policy issues of the day. Readings will draw from a wide variety of disciplines, including international relations, political theory, history, sociology, economics, theology, and philosophy.
