Center for Global Justice Cosponsors April 13 Oxford Human Rights Consortium on Violence and Non-Violence

The College of Law’s Center for Global Justice will co-sponsor the April 13, 2015, Oxford Human Rights Consortium, “Teaching Peace in Times of War: Reflections on Violence and Non-Violence in the 21st Century.” That event will be held from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. in Room 260 of Orson Spencer Hall.

The featured speaker is Professor Cheyney Ryan, who works with the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict, where he is engaged in a multi-year project exploring the relation of pacifism and non-violence to contemporary just war theory. He focuses on the philosophical and historical contexts of these perspectives; he is interested in both their secular and religious forms. His aim is to develop the pacifist alternative in ways that are sensitive to the contemporary reality and challenges of war.
