US administration announces groundbreaking Executive Order on international religious freedom

Yesterday, US President Donald Trump signed a new Executive Order on international religious freedom that prioritizes international religious freedom concerns for United States foreign policy.

It specifically requires the Department of State and USAID to create long-term strategic plans on advancing religious freedom internationally, provides $50 million per year for religious freedom programs, and requires U.S. foreign service members to receive extensive training on religious freedom.

The Order also provides for the greater use of economic tools, including reductions of foreign assistance, visa restrictions, and sanctions, to advance religious freedom in countries that have been deemed serious violators of religious freedom.
