Douglas M. Johnston is president and founder of the International Center for Religion & Diplomacy. Johnston’s experience led to the ICRD’s unconventional approach to conflict resolution can be found in (1) Religion, the Missing Dimension of Statecraft; (2) Faith-based Diplomacy: Trumping Realpolitik; and (3) Religion, Terror, and Error: U.S. Foreign Policy and the Challenge of Spiritual Engagement. These books collectively explore the positive role that religious or spiritual factors can play in preventing or resolving conflict, while advancing social change based on justice and reconciliation. They also make a strong case for incorporating religious considerations into the practice of international politics and provide a blueprint for doing so.
