ON-Lion Letter
In January, a delegation of top officials from the Institute for Global Engagement (IGE) in Arlington, Va., visited Pakistan.  At the invitation of the Iqbal International Institute for Research and Dialogue at the International Islamic University in Islamabad, IGE president Chris Seiple delivered two lectures there.

Seiple's first lecture, "Trends in American Evangelicalism:  Implications for Engaging Islam," was given to an invitation-only selection of scholars from the National School of Shari'a (Islamic jurisprudence) and the National School of Da'wa (Islamic missiology) at the Islamic University.  His second lecture, "Justice as a Bridge between Christian and Muslim Misunderstanding," was given to the faculty and students of the social sciences at the university.

Seiple also appeared on the national-security television show, Insight with Dr. Riffat, during which he discussed U.S. policy in Afghanistan.

IGE studies the impact of faith on state and society, encourages governments to protect religious freedom, and equips citizens to exercise that freedom responsibly.  For additional information and insight on how IGE has engaged Pakistan, see Seiple's August 2009 presentation at Google's headquarters in Mountain View, Calif., "Religious Freedom:  The Ultimate Counterterrorism Weapon?" 

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports IGE, including its Review of Faith & International Affairs journal.
