The Catholic Church boasts a rich tradition of teaching and action on war and peace. This course explores theological, ethical, and policy dimensions of military intervention, nuclear disarmament, sustainable development, social movements, peace processes, climate change, refugees, and other issues. You will explore these issues with officials at the Vatican – the source of official Church teaching, a respected diplomatic actor on peace issues, and a catalyst for Catholic peacebuilding activities around the world. You will also engage with other global leaders in Catholic peacebuilding, including Caritas Internationalis, the Sant’Egidio Community, women’s and men’s religious orders, and lay movements.
