Is the dominant American approach to religion, society, and the state worthy of emulation in other countries? The question is not only academic, but it has policy implications both for the American future and for U.S. efforts to promote religious freedom and democracy worldwide. It intersects with global controversies about international norms, national self-determination, proselytism, and the rights of religious communities. On March 1, 2011, Georgetown University brought together leading scholars and practitioners to discuss these issues. Three panels examined these questions from the perspective of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, respectively. Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver delivered a lunchtime keynote address. The symposium was sponsored by the Georgetown's Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service and made possible through the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation.
