Religion, Conflict, and Peace Fellows

A joint initiative with Harvard Kennedy School of Government, the Religion Conflict and Peace initiative examines the potential for deeper understandings of religion to yield fresh insights into contemporary challenges and opportunities for just peacebuilding in the Middle East. RCP Fellows play active roles in shaping and advancing the initiative with Dr. Moore through a program of research, coursework and programming.
