Dear Readers,


Inter-Religious Studies continues to grow as a field, both within academe and in the non-profit and social sectors. The result has been an outgrowth of organizations that devote significant attention to the challenges and opportunities that globalization has enabled, by way of increased interactions between religious traditions.


This special issue of the Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue, distributed in two parts, will include the work of both individual authors and major organizations, notably UNESCO, Herzen Pedagogical University in Russia, and the National Association of College and University Chaplains. The emphasis on institutional involvement within this issue is not merely intended to reflect the emerging trend of inter-religious engagement but also encourage it anew.


We hope that these articles pique your interest, excite you, and provide further impetus for you as an individual – and member of an organization – to become involved in inter-religious work and use it as a tool to increase efficiency and equity within your social, intellectual, and professional communities.


With warm regards,


Stephanie Varnon-Hughes and Joshua Zaslow Stanton,

Editors-in-Chief
