The Fletcher Initiative on Religion, Law, and Diplomacy is a multi-faceted initiative involving faculty and students at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.
The Initiative combines curricular offerings and an invited lecture series featuring scholars, policymakers, and practitioners who are engaged at the intersection of religion and international relations. It aims to:
- Provide a framework for interdisciplinary study and practice of international affairs through the lens of religious literacy;
- Create spaces to challenge assumptions and enhance understanding about the role of religion in the varied discourses at the Fletcher School;
- Develop these competencies through an annual Fall conference and annual speaker series.
