Douglas M. Johnston to discuss "Religion and Statecraft" at BYU Nov. 17

Douglas M. Johnston, founder and president of the International Center for Religion and Diplomacy, will present “Religion and Statecraft” at a Wheatley Institution lecture Tuesday, Nov. 17, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center Assembly Hall on the Brigham Young University campus.

Johnston has a broad range of executive experience in government, academia, the private sector and the military. At the age of 27, he was the youngest officer in the U.S. Navy to qualify for command of a nuclear submarine. Most recently, Johnston served as executive vice president and chief operating officer of the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies.

His interest in religion and conflict resolution stems from his involvement with the National Prayer Breakfast fellowship. He has edited and authored several books, including “Religion, the Missing Dimension of Statecraft,” “Foreign Policy into the 21st Century: The U.S. Leadership Challenge” and “Faith-based Diplomacy: Trumping Realpolitik.”

Johnston is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and holds a master’s degree in public administration and a Ph.D. in political science from Harvard University.
