JP2 Lecture: John, Lord Alderdice, University of Oxford “Religion as Source of Peace or Unrest in Society?”
Oct 22 at 16:00 - 17:30
Religion is regularly blamed by its opponents for being a source of unrest and even violent conflict, and they are able to point to many instances in the past and the present where this appears to be the case. Adherents claim that, on the contrary, their religion is a source of peace, at a personal level as well as more widely in society. It is of course people, individually and in community, who are responsible for bringing conflict or its resolution, but how does our interpretation of our religion contribute to these outcomes and why? These challenging questions will be addressed by Lord Alderdice from the perspectives of psychology, politics and faith – all fields in which he has a long-standing involvement and commitment.
