The establishment of the Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding reflects the role of religion in contemporary international systems.
Both Georgetown’s Catholic-Jesuit heritage and its location in Washington DC have shaped the University’s abiding interest in the study of religion and international relations. The global presence and impact of Islam is a fact of international life. Understanding this and relating it to other dimensions of world affairs is a central concern of the Center’s academic programs.
