In the context of a globalizing world marked by the freer flow of people and ideas, proselytism has become increasingly controversial. On March 3, 2010, the Berkley Center sponsored a day-long symposium on proselytism and religious freedom in the 21st century. Experts from a variety of scholarly and policy fields investigated the theological, legal, and political implications of the missionary impulse.
The day-long event consisted of four panels, each of which examined the question of religion and democracy in U.S. foreign policy from a different perspective. The panels addressed the role of religious actors in U.S. democracy programs and policies; the 'twin tolerations' and democratic stability in highly religious societies; emerging trends in the data concerning the relationships between religion and democracy; and the relationship between Islam and democracy in key Muslim countries.
