FRIA hosts day-long collaborative workshops that equip professionals working in international affairs with approaches for effective engagement with religion, faith, and belief.

During FRIA sessions, participants:

  • explore the complexities of competing academic, policy and practitioner narratives relating to questions of religion and international affairs
  • draw on their own experience to identify instances when effective engagement with religion and belief is key
  • collaborate to evaluate alternative strategies for successfully navigating these challenges

FRIA participants are civil servants and diplomatic staff, academics, universities and think tanks, and other practitioners who influence the way religion is engaged with in international affairs practice all over the world.

On completion of the training, participants are better able to navigate and respond to future encounters, and are connected to a global community of practice whose members are committed to innovative and creative approaches to engagement.
