The aim of this annotated bibliography on ‘Religion and Development’ is to lend a hand to practitioners in humanitarian and development work:

‘Where can I read and learn about how to take religion, religious communities and religious actors seriously in programme dialogue, planning and implementation?’

‘Where can one find accounts of good practices, learnings, tools and relevant methods in this regard?’ Therefore, this bibliography is not meant to be an overview of the theoretical aspect of religion and development in new political science and development literature, but rather to deliberately focus on the practical consequences and positive effects of the emerging new insights.
