With its corps of missionaries and explosive growth overseas, the LDS Church is evolving from a US church to an international religion. Church members are often inclined toward careers in international relations. What are some issues that Mormons working in international relations should be prepared to address? What challenges might Mormons experience during a career in public service that others would not? What strengths do Mormons bring to this field? What skills and abilities make Mormons effective in IR and government roles, and what can get in the way of their effectiveness? Panelists representing a wide range of experience will attempt to answer these and other key questions about Mormons in international relations.
