Charter for Compassion Launch with Karen Armstrong

On November 12, 2009, the "Charter for Compassion" was unveiled to the world, and the Berkley Center hosted a roundtable discussion with Karen Armstrong as part of the Charter's global launch. The "Charter for Compassion" is an interfaith initiative that seeks to apply shared moral principles to foster global interreligious understanding. Georgetown faculty, staff, and students posed questions about the Charter's drafting process, the action agenda for the Charter, and how the idea of compassion finds expression in diverse religious and secular traditions.
