Opinion Article: ‘Can Christian Democracy Save America from Trump?’

‘Religious conservatism doesn’t have to be populist. It has played an important role for democracy and dignity in Europe – and can do so in the US, too.’

The article is co-written by Carlo Invernizzi-Accetti, assistant professor of political science at the City College of New York and author of What is Christian Democracy? Politics, Religion and Ideology (Cambridge University Press, forthcoming), and Daniel Steinmetz-Jenkins, lecturer in religious studies at Yale University and author of The Crisis of Secularism since 1989: A Global Perspective (Columbia University Press, forthcoming).
