Religious Pluralism, Globalization, and World Politics

This chapter focuses on religious involvement in the world of economic and social development. Here the large faith-inspired development organizations, including Catholic Caritas International, Protestant World Vision, and Islamic Relief, have long combined an ethical commitment to serve the poor and disadvantaged with transnational activities. Churches and Islamic charities, and other religious networks, have sustained networks of schools and hospitals. The past two decades have seen broader and deeper engagement, as faith-inspired groups are increasingly moving beyond humanitarian relief, education, and the provision of health care into new issue areas such as women’s rights, human trafficking, and global warming.

Keywords:   economics, social development, Catholic, Protestant, ethics, Islam, education, humanitarian relief, HIV/AIDS
