Abstract

The increased interest in the role of religious actors, ideas and practices in the International Relations (IR) discipline is a promising development of contemporary scholarship. Within the study of humanitarianism in particular, attention to the range of ways in which religion infuses action and meaning in the global space has raised important questions about how best to understand these interactions. However, slow movement away from secular framings of humanitarianism means that religious actors remain under-conceptualised and poorly understood.
