Religion has a powerful impact on human and societal development. Can a deeper engagement with religion and religious communities work to enhance economic growth, political stability, conflict resolution and peace?

At this symposium in London, organized by the University of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs, leading thinkers will identify ways of advancing the integration of religion and human development, creating partnerships for the common good.
