Seminar on the Religious Right in U.S. politics with Randall Stephens, Hilde Restad and Hilde Løvdal.

The Norwegian Institute of International Affairs, NUPI, takes pleasure in inviting you to a seminar:

The Role of the Religious Right in U.S. Politics
The Religious Right has been a force to reckon with in American presidential politics since Ronald Reagan and Jerry Falwell’s Moral Majority entered into a political marriage in 1980.

In this year’s Republican primaries, former Senator Rick Santorum from Pennsylvania rose to unlikely heights on the backs of the conservative movement. We discuss this  important aspect of U.S. politics before a session of Q&A.

Program 13:00-15:00.
