Sacred Aid

Faith and Humanitarianism

Michael Barnett and Janice Gross Stein

  • Examines the dynamic relationship between the secularization and sanctification of humanitarianism.
  • Explores the structures and everyday acts of aid agencies and other actors that create, sustain, and dissolve the differences between religious and secular humanitarianism.
  • Argues against the dominant line in international relations theory that suggests that the only kind of faith is religious faith.
