Religion shaping development: inspirational, inhibiting, institutionalised?

21 July 10

21-22 July 2010, University of Birmingham

This conference will bring together research findings that address three central questions and explore their policy and practice implications:How do religious values and beliefs drive the actions and interactions of individuals and faith-based organisations? How do religious values and beliefs and religious organisations influence the relationships between states and societies? In what ways do faith communities interact with development actors and what are the outcomes with respect to the achievement of development goals?

The first two days of the conference will concentrate on the presentation and discussion of research findings. The final day will explore the implications of the research undertaken during the Religions and Development Research Programme in India, Pakistan, Nigeria and Tanzania with policy makers, practitioners and development agencies. Participants may attend either or both parts of the conference.
