Interfaith Just Peacemaking: Christian and Muslim Resources for Restorative Justice
Religion is often viewed as the source of conflict and violence, but Professor Syeed will discuss how diverse traditions can foster connection, non-violence, and interfaith understanding. She will explore the concept of interfaith just peacemaking, and will address the question – how do we build conflict interventions that prize restoration over retribution from spiritual sources, and practices based on scripture, oral traditions and the history of religious communities? Professor Syeed will share examples of restorative peacebuilding in violent conflicts which instead of violence seek a third way to resolve controversies. Attendees will learn how we can function as engaged members of our current social contexts that build relational ethics for a collective future for us all.
