What Is Religion Doing in Foreign Policy?

Religion as a new factor in international relations

Free churches, evangelical currents and charismatic preachers are flourishing around the world and their influence on politics is growing. Case in point: evangelicals support Jair Bolsonaro, the president of Brazil. What impact do these developments have on international (cultural) relations? What approach do these religious actors have? Where is the line between these movements and populism?
