American University – Center for Latin America and Latino Studies

The initiative, Religion and Violence in Latin America, seeks to illuminate how religion has related to violence in different contexts. Research has three key objectives: 1) to assess the impact of churches and religion on political change in Latin America through the last half century, in both dictatorships and democracy; 2) to examine specifically their role in the defense of human rights and ministry toward victims of violence; and 3) to interpret how religious ideas and practice have been shaped by political context and different forms of violence.
