Evangelical Foreign Policy Activism Ascendant

(p.181) Conclusion
To Bring the Good News to All Nations

Lauren Frances Turek

Cornell University Press

This chapter reviews the influential role that evangelical lobbyists played in shaping human rights legislation during the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations. It mentions how evangelical lobbyists placed their work on the International Religious Freedom Act within a larger historical context. The chapter traces the early history of effective evangelical lobbying efforts on matters related to human rights and U.S. foreign policy. It illuminates key moments when evangelical activism actually influenced the specific policy directions that government leaders pursued or the manner in which they discussed and understood global issues. It also reflects on the legacy of earlier evangelical foreign policy engagement in building the political capital and international networks necessary for effective advocacy at the turn of the twenty-first century.

Keywords:   evangelical lobbyists, human rights, International Religious Freedom Act, U.S. foreign policy, evangelical activism, evangelical lobbying
