Event Description

The entanglement of religion with political conflict has obviously been a profound challenge to the international order over the past two decades.  Can we creatively address these conflicts and even find common ground and resources for peace building in religion? 

The discussion leader is “Dr. Dave" Derezotes, Professor of Social Work and Director of the Peace and Conflict Studies Program at the University of Utah, recently published a new textbook on the use of dialogue in conflict transformation.  He also facilitates dialogues on campus and in the community.
