This course exposes participants to fundamental understanding of religion as a variable in world affairs with a particular focus on the role of both religion and religious actors in both domestic and international politics. Designed for an interdisciplinary audience— Core and Diplomacy — this course draws from readings touching on a variety of religious traditions like Christianity, Judaism, and Islam; regional settings {e.g. North America, Africa, and Asia) and cultures.

    This course will examine the relationship of the terms religion, law and war and how political and legal philosophers have understood these terms in different centuries, continents and contexts. As both a CORE course and a DIPLOMACY course, students from different backgrounds will be encouraged to learn from one another and to be aware of their own perspectives as they come to understand others. The development of laws of war and humanitarian law in international armed conflicts, collective responses to state aggression, and individual criminal responsibility for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide will be studied and discussed. The course will encourage students to engage in a process of critical response to and logical, objective analysis of traditional concepts of the laws of war and humanitarian law. By the end of the course, through readings, written assignments, and an in-class simulation of a United Nations negotiation in an actual conflict situation, students will understand how doctrines of law and religion apply to war, violent political events, the international legal system and the quest for peace. The course will involve an analysis of original documents like the UN Charter, Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, certain treaties and international law cases involving war, peace and respect for humanitarian law. In addition, students will read selections from books and articles by scholars, commentators and practitioners of international law related to the topics described in the class schedule below

    This course will explore wars of religion and religious views of war. We are living through an era fraught with religious warfare - wars animated by religious conflict and wars that use religious abuse as weapons to demoralize and subdue the enemy. The course will touch upon some major religious traditions and set in dialogue their respective views of war, assess their contributions to the contemporary laws of war, and examine particular historical episodes of religious conflict. Students should be prepared to do a significant amount of reading each class and to discuss it constructively. Courses work well only when everyone comes prepared for a critical and informed conversation. Throughout the course we will try to link the readings with contemporary events. Hence, students should keep informed about relevant current events through regular reading of newspapers. You should read a newspaper· that provides thorough coverage of international news (for example, The New York Times, Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal). If possible you should also read foreign newspapers. You may also want to watch news on TV. BBC, CNN International, CCTV9 (from China) and Russia Today provide good insight into current events. You will get a better insight if you follow news from different countries
