The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs
Center programs build knowledge, promote dialogue, and support action in a critical area at the intersection of world affairs. Under the leadership of a Center faculty member, each sponsors a range of events, publications, and interactive, web-based knowledge resources. The Centers Undergraduate Initiatives engage students as producers, and not just consumers of knowledge. In particular, the Religious Freedom Project is the US only university-based program devoted exclusively to the analysis of religious freedom, a basic human right restricted in many parts of the World. A team of interdisciplinary scholars examines different understandings of religious liberty as it relates to other fundamental freedoms; its importance for democracy; and its role in social and economic development, international diplomacy, and the struggle against violent religious extremism. Our target audiences are the academy, the media, policymakers, and the general public, both here and abroad.
