This article questions the growing use of the term 'faith-based' in development policy and practice. It is argued that it homogenises people in minority migrant and developing-county contexts and excludes many who are working for human rights and social justice from secular perspectives, thus providing an unsound analytical base for policy. Against the background of the 'war on terror', the author also examines the differences in US and British development policy arising out of the term 'faith-based'.
