Here at Fletcher, we pride ourselves on our multifaceted approach to education. By examining problems through a number of lenses – business, politics, security, diplomacy, among others – our students and faculty are able to tackle real-world challenges head-on with smart, informed and holistic approaches.

From the rise of ISIS to the continued struggle over the West Bank and East Jerusalem, as well as the growing concerns over the safety of Christians in Turkey, religion intersects many of the challenges facing our world today. That’s why we’re honored to have alumna Elizabeth Prodromou (J81, F83) as a Visiting Associate Professor of Conflict Resolution.

Prior to Fletcher, Professor Prodromou served a diplomatic appointment as Vice Chair and Commissioner on the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (2004-2012), and was a member of the U.S. Secretary of State’s Religion & Foreign Policy Working Group (2011-2015).

I had the opportunity to sit down with Elizabeth and discuss her current work, her interest in studying religion and the ongoing situation in Mosul, Iraq through a religious lens. You can watch our conversation below:

As always, thank you for reading.
