Toward a Post-Nuclear Just Peace

 

September 1, 2020
4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. EDT 
Location: Online Zoom Webinar - RSVP Required

In this conversation, Rev. Drew Christiansen, S.J., co-editor of A World Free From Nuclear Weapons (2020), and Eli McCarthy, editor of A Just Peace Ethic Primer (2020), will discuss the implications of the Pope’s stance on nuclear disarmament and how a just peace might be pursued more faithfully, consistently, and effectively. Topics will include the Treaty to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons, the challenges of the new nuclear age, the three categories of a just peace ethic and a case example, and the agenda for both theoretical inquiry and programs of social action in pursuit of a post-nuclear peace.
