Summary
  • ""Finally there is a book that addresses the increasing presence and relevance of faith-based organizations at the UN. In his coherent and accessible analysis, Jeffrey Haynes shows how FBOs navigate UN's liberal secular ethos with an eye on their ideological differences. With its stimulating discussion of issue areas ranging from reproductive health rights to economic development, the book will generate considerable reflection on the role of FBOs in global governance." Nukhet A. Sandal, Director, War and Peace Studies, Ohio University, USA and co-author, Religion and IR Theory (Routledge) The book examines selected faith-based organisations (FBOs) and their attempts to seek to influence debate and decision-making at the United Nations (UN). Increasing attention on FBOs in this context has followed what is widely understood as a widespread, post-Cold War 'religious resurgence', which characterises a novel 'postsecular' international environment. One aspect of the new postsecular environment is increasing focus on global public policy at the UN, from FBOs from various religious traditions, especially Christianity, Islam, and Judaism"--
