Newcomers to this subject, whether international professionals or the general public, will learn how religious actors have helped play an important role in persuading official political leaders to pursue paths of peace.
Introduction to Interfaith Conflict Resolution examines two case studies, highlighting interfaith peacemaking efforts between Christians and Muslims in Nigeria, as well as the role that various faith communities played in helping to bring and end to the 36-year internal armed conflict in Guatemala.
This course is designed to enhance understanding of the foundational principles of faith-based peacemaking rather than serve as a “how to” guide for communities.
