Erörtert werden theoretische und normative Aspekte im Verhältnis von Globalisierung, Global Governance und der Revitalisierung von faith sowie Formen der transnationalen Kooperation zwischen den einzelnen Religionsgemeinschaften. Empirisch werden die für weltpolitische Ambitionen besonders prädestinierten abrahamitischen bzw. monotheistischen Religionsgemeinschaften in den Blick genommen. Auf dem Prüfstand steht die teilweise sehr brisante, ambivalente Rolle, die Christentum, Judentum und Islam im internationalen Kontext einnehmen. Zudem werden konkrete Politikfelder internationalen religiösen Engagements, deren Inhalte und Ziele vorgestellt wie die internationale Friedenspolitik, die Wirtschafts- und Sozialpolitik oder auch die Umweltpolitik.
