The Orfalea Center for Global and International Studies presented a series of workshops on religion in civil society. These workshops involved both academic experts and leaders of international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that provide humanitarian aid and services in Latin America, South and Southeast Asia, Africa and the Middle East. These free-wheeling and interactive workshops were held from 2008 to 2012 in Buenos Aires, Delhi, Cairo, and Santa Barbara. They identified the role of religion in the recent socio-political changes in each of these regions, and the way that religion has been both a help and a hindrance in the operations of international humanitarian organizations.
