Instructor: Faith J. H. McDonnell, Director of the Religious Liberty Program and the Church Alliance for a New Sudan at the Institute on Religion and Democracy

Along with Iraqi and Syrian Christians being crushed by ISIS, Christians in Nigeria, Sudan, Pakistan, Egypt, Iran and elsewhere have experienced imprisonment, torture,
persecution and, in some cases, ethnic/religious cleansing amounting to genocide because of their faith. This course will shed light on this critical problem and examine efforts to deal with it by the U.S. Congress and religious freedom and
humanitarian relief organizations.
