Faith Angle Europe: November 2019

The Faith Angle Forum held its 34rd Conference on Religion, Politics & Public Life—and its first ever in Europe—from November 3–5, 2019, in Côte d’Azur, France. Over two days, sixteen journalists from the U.S. and Europe, along with eight scholars, convened for sessions on the rise of national populism, immigration in Europe, how ancient biblical wisdom can speak to today’s problems, and how religious pluralism might be renewed today.

The series brings together a select group of nationally and internationally respected journalists and distinguished scholars for in-depth discussions of cutting-edge issues at the intersection of religion and public life. Under the leadership of director Josh Good, the Faith Angle Forum provides extended discussion and the kind of deep reflection that is not always possible in today’s fast paced world of breaking news.
