Politics and Elections
Religion and faith play a significant role in individuals' private lives. And in America and across the globe, they increasingly influence public policy and political questions as well. Brookings's research includes topics such as religion and politics, faith based initiatives, legal protections of religious expression, religion in the workplace, religious education and relations between Christians and Muslims.
