The G20 gets religion

This month in Bali, Indonesia, the G20 Summit held its first annual Religion Forum, the “R20.” The G20’s decision to acknowledge the role of religion in geopolitical deliberations was refreshing, Ambassador Glendon, who attended the Summit, writes: “I permit myself to entertain the thought that possibly, just possibly, this little noticed meeting in Bali might have a larger effect on world stability and prosperity than any decision reached by world leaders at the G20 Summit.”
