Framing International & Interfaith RelationsWritten by Peter Makari
Realism is an inadequate paradigm to describe the myriad relationships that exist within and across state boundaries, relationships that include mission partnerships and interfaith relations. There are advantages and disadvantages to conflating international and interfaith relations, and it is in framing the two that the challenge arises. The main assertion of this paper is that perspectives—indeed framing—comprise essential aspects of the links between international relations and interfaith relations. Peter Makari explores these questions in this paper, "Framing I[F]R: International and Interfaith Relations."
