Webinar #3: Nonviolence and Just Peace: Moving beyond war

Building off the previous webinar on experiences of nonviolence in violent conflict zones and Jesus’ way of nonviolence, this webinar addressed “Nonviolence and Just Peace: Moving beyond war.” What are the developments in theological reflection and praxis of just peace and how does this build on the scriptures and trajectory of Catholic social thought? How would a turn to just peace impact our moral analysis of conflicts, practices, and engagement with the broader society, including policy makers? What could be the role of the Church in moving beyond the notion of justified war? Moderated by Cory Lockhart, with panelists Lisa Sowle Cahill, Merwyn deMello and Eli Sasaran McCarthy.
