Religious Peacebuilding

EMP6619HF  L0101
Offered in Fall 2011  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course investigates the religious grounds for peacemaking today. Each student will be responsible for following and reporting on developments in one location represented by a Tanenbaum “Peacemaker-in-Action” throughout the course. Meanwhile, the evolution of the theological/ecclesial/interfaith discussion of peacemaking will be traced through the 20th century debate between pacifism and just war; conflict resolution and transformation; peacekeeping, peacemaking and peacebuilding; humanitarian aid and development; NGOs and the military. Students will be expected to explore these debates in relation to their “case study” and may write the case study from the perspective of any faith.

Basic Degree students enrol in EMP3619HF.
