Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am a graduate student at Georgetown University, currently pursuing a master's degree in Conflict Resolution. I have worked with NGOs on issues of peacebuilding and human rights in Liberia, Nigeria and Tanzania. My main interest lies in the role of religion and religious groups in conflicts as well as in peacebuilding. In which instances do religious groups promote the use of force? How can radical religious groups be included in democratic processes in order to deradicalize them? How can religion be used to strengthen social cohesion and enable reconciliation in conflict and post-conflict settings?
Through the Global Ethics Network I hope to be able to exchange thoughts, experiences and research outcomes with students, scholars and practitioners who are interested in these or similar issues. I am also interested in learning more about how best to combine research and practice in a career in order to generate knowledge that is of direct relevance to politics and peacebuilding practice.
