We are pleased to present the highlights video for the 2013 Camden Conference, The Middle East: What Next?
The topic of the 2008 Camden Conference was "Religion as a Force in World Affairs"
The 21st Annual Camden Conference, Religion as a Force in World Affairs, was held February 22-24, 2008.
For the first time, the World Affairs Council of Maine and the Camden Conference offered a live presentation of the Camden Conference at the Hannaford Auditorium in Portland.
The Conference explored the role of religion as a potent influence upon the formation and the implementation of foreign policy—especially the shaping of foreign policy in the United States—as a crucial factor in ongoing conflicts and crisis settings; as a central component in the deepening clash between self-identities in various movements and communities; and as potential stimulus for mediation, peace-making, and constructive social action.
The program was as follows:
Friday, February 22:
Saturday, February 23:
Religion and U.S. Foreign Policy
Religion and the Middle East
Sunday, February 24
The moderator for the 2008 Camden Conference was Graham Phaup, Executive Director, Institute for Global Ethics.
