National University of Singapore, Asia Research Institute presents the conference, Religion and the Politics of Development: Priests, Potentates and “Progress,” which will explore the nexus of religion, development, and politics in Asia. Any discussion of politics must pay close attention to the state and discussion at the conference will be informed by recent developments in religion-and-the-state theory. However, politics extends beyond the state and includes activity at communal-levels as well as global flows of ideas, finances, and institutions. We are interested in exploring religion and the politics of development at multiple levels (e.g. -municipal, provincial, national, transnational). August 28-29, 2013.
