World Methodist Council General Secretary Ivan Abrahams attended the Council on Foreign Relations’ Eighth Annual Religion and Foreign Policy Summer Workshop.
The event brought together faith leaders from throughout the United States to discuss a variety of issues, including online radicalization, the state of religion in America, and failing states and religious tensions.
The Council on Foreign Relations is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher dedicated to being a resource for its members, government officials, business executives, journalists, educators and students, civic and religious leaders, and other interested. CFR’s Religion and Foreign Policy Initiative connects religious and congregational leaders, scholars, and thinkers with CFR’s resources on U.S. foreign policy and provides a forum for discussion on a broad range of issues. The objective of the workshop is to examine pressing international concerns with a small group of religious leaders, scholars, and CFR fellows.
“The Religion and Foreign Policy Workshop and the Council on Foreign Relations allowed me a chance to confer with other people of faith on some of the biggest questions that are dealing with in our modern world. It was an honor and privilege to be involved in the event,” said General Secretary Abrahams.
