Project History

During the fall of 2008, Yale Divinity School and Yale School of Management, in collaboration with the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, launched the Faith and Globalization Initiative as a three-year effort to conduct dialogue as a way of considering these essential issues. (Read an article in the Yale Daily News here.)

Miroslav Volf drew upon his research in faith and economics, human work, reconciliation and memory in co-leading with Prime Minister Tony Blair three successive courses enriched by a wealth of influential international guest speakers - both academics and practitioners - investigating how faith can be lived responsibly in our globalized world and how it can contribute to the humanization of globalization processes. Volf complemented Blair’s more pragmatic, policy-making background in his academic approach to the issues of faith and globalization.

Faith and Globalization lectures are available on iTunes here.

Volf has also conducted the Faith and Globalization Seminar at Calvin College in 2010, and his book, Flourishing: Why We Need God in a Globalized World was published by Yale University Press in 2016.
