February 29, 2016

Location: Copley Hall Copley Formal Lounge Map

Religious-inspired violence and peacemaking are more robust today than ever. There has been a resurgence of religious claims and justifications in politics. At the same time we've seen the growth of faith-based humanitarian and peacemaking activities, from Pope Francis visiting Bethlehem and the Western Wall to the local church efforts to eradicate Ebola. What does this trend portend for the future and for governments, international organizations such as the United Nations, and religious institutions? Experts discussed international security, religiously inspired violence, and global governance as they explored how best to counter threats to world peace.
