According to the Pew Research Center, “roughly a quarter of the world’s countries are grappling with high levels of religious hostilities within their borders.” As a result, the religious composition of many countries is rapidly changing: In Iraq, for example, the number of Christians has plummeted from approximately 1.5 million in 2005 to 300,000 today.

Former US Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA) led a delegation from the 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative, a newly launched religious freedom organization, to northern Iraq earlier this year. The delegation’s trip report documents sharply deteriorating conditions for Iraq’s religious and ethnic minority communities targeted by ISIS.

How should American foreign policy leaders address religious persecution in Iraq and around the globe? Wolf and two other religious freedom experts, Daniel Mark and Nina Shea, discuss this concern.
