The Church and Nuclear Issues

The Berkley Center is collaborating with Notre Dame's Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, Boston College's Department of Theology, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' Office of International Justice and Peace, and the Nuclear Threat Initiative at Stanford University in a series of programs on the ethics of the abolition of nuclear weapons.

The first public event was a consultation for Catholic bishops on April 24 to 25, 2014, hosted by former U.S. secretary of state George P. Schultz through Stanford University's Hoover Institution and Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies.

In addition, Drew Christiansen, S.J., works closely with Global Priorities and the Holy See on initiatives to advance the goal of nuclear abolition. Global Priorities advocates the reallocation of savings from nuclear weapons production for humanitarian purposes, particularly healthcare and education for children. Further details on programming will be announced at a later date.
