RPP Colloquium: Making Peace with Islam—Islamic Approaches to Peacemaking

RPP Colloquium: Making Peace with Islam—Islamic Approaches to Peacemaking

Examining Islamic peace teachings and paradigms within a larger comparative context, Dr. Funk will explore both the distinctiveness of Islamic approaches to peacemaking and ways in which Islamic experiences of conflict and peace mirror those of other communities. Particular attention will be given to keynote themes emphasized by Muslim peacebuilders, and to examples of various ways in which Islamic precepts have been applied to support restorative justice, nonviolent social justice advocacy, and interfaith understanding.

Dr. Nathan C. Funk is associate professor of Peace and Conflict Studies, Conrad Grebel University College, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada and co-author of Islam and Peacemaking in the Middle East and Peace and Conflict Resolution in Islam: Precept and Practice.
