How can we better tap the positive currents within and across traditions to advance deeper interreligious understanding? And how should we think about—and act on—the changing relationship between religion, violence, and peace in today’s world? The Berkley Center Tenth Anniversary Symposium convened thought leaders and practitioners to address these crucial questions. The symposium was preceded by a keynote address by Madeleine Albright on the afternoon of April 7.
