Abstract

This chapter sets out the theoretical framework of the book. It is divided into two major sections. Section one is a review of the literature on the re-emergence of religion in international politics and the ‘faith and development’ agenda. It traces the emergence of scholarly interest in bringing back and analysing religion in the study of international politics. The analysis then narrows to examine the ‘faith and development’ agenda, which is one aspect of the resurgence of religion in international affairs. Scholars and development practitioners are increasingly noting, exploring and learning ways through which faith can be incorporated, systematically, in development policymaking as well as implementation. Section two introduces the theory of new institutionalism, with a particular focus on historical institutionalism. In relation to that, the chapter ends with the presentation of the analytical mechanisms that are used for the analysis in Chapters  3 6.
