Religion and Global Development Faculty Seminar
This October 5 session launched the 2006-2007 academic year of the Faculty Seminar on Religion and Development, a forum for Georgetown faculty and members of the policy community to meet and discuss questions at the intersection of religion and international development. As 2006-2007 convener, Katherine Marshall was able to build on the work of the previous year's co-conveners, Carol Lancaster and Gap Lo Biondo, S.J. The speaker was Dominque Peccoud, S.J., who led a discussion on livelihood issues and religion. Fr. Peccoud's special focus was the significance of "decent work," a central theme of the International Labour Office (ILO) and one on which he has conducted a remarkable interfaith consultation.
The Faculty Seminar on Religion and Development, inaugurated in 2005-2006, was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Mortara Center's Initiative on International Development.
