Event Description


The 2015 Human Development & Capability Association (HDCA) conference will be hosted by Georgetown University, in Washington, D.C. on the theme: "Capabilities on the Move: Mobility and Aspirations"

The 2015 HDCA Program Committee cordially invites scholars, government policy makers, practitioners, and other interested parties from all over the world to participate in this conference.

Original empirical research, theoretical issues, case-studies or reports of experiences, or findings from major research projects, and book panels relevant to conference theme or more broadly related to human development/capabilities approach will be presented.

As part of this conference, current and former members of Carnegie Council's Global Ethics Network will host a forum on the Ethics of War and Peace. This forum relates well to the theme of the conference. Issues of war and peace are centrally tied to the problems of poverty, deprivation, subjugation, and violence—topics that are among the core concerns in the capabilities and human development literature. This year's HDCA is on the theme of mobility and aspirations, and what better way to highlight the urgency of the topic than to have a forum on war and peace! 

The panel features some of the leading figures in the debate on the moral issues of warfare. In discussing the ethical challenges of peace and war in a world continually torn by conflict and violence, the panelists will offer theoretical analysis as well as policy guidelines. Given the HDCA mission of human empowerment and peace building, the forum seems to be right on track.

The forum will feature:

Cheyney Ryan, Global Ethics Fellow alum and a fellow of the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law, and Armed Conflict, presenting on Pragmatism and Vision in Building Peace;

Lyn Boyd-Judson, Global Ethics Fellow alum and director of the USC Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics, presenting on Peace Movements, Armed Participation, and the Well-Being of Women in War;

Deen Chatterjee, current Global Ethics Fellow and senior advisor and professorial fellow in the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah, presenting on Prevention, Drones, and Just War: Looking Through the Lens of Just Peace.

The End of the U.S.-Taliban Talks? with Jonathan Cristol

Despite progress over the last year, Donald Trump effectively ended the latest round of U.S.-Taliban negotiations with a tweet earlier this month. Will talks continue in a more understated way? Does this change anything on the ground in Afghanistan? And what is the Taliban doing in Moscow? Jonathan Cristol, author of "The United States and the Taliban before and after 9/11," discusses all this and more.
