President Biden must prioritise international religious freedom

Share this:

President Biden has promised to organize “a global Summit for Democracy” this year as part of his administration’s effort to restore America’s global leadership role. Biden’s priorities for the world’s democracies are “fighting corruption, defending against authoritarianism and advancing human rights.”

Adding protection of religious freedom to that list of priorities would attract support from American conservatives, help strengthen the democracy and human rights agenda in foreign policy and contribute to Biden’s goal of diminishing polarization at home.
