“Center for Peacemaking: Creating Nonviolent Social Action”
Presenter: Dr. Michael Duffey, Associate Professor Emeritus of Theology, Marquette University.
The Marquette University Center for Peacemaking operates at the intersection of thought and action. Informed by the Jesuit mission of reconciliation and working for peace, the Center for Peacemaking fosters research and action for the promotion of social justice, human dignity, and peace.
As the only academic center at a Catholic university that explicitly focuses on exploring the power of nonviolence, we bring together students, faculty, and the wider community to achieve three main objectives: 1) Formation-shaping values through experiential learning opportunities, 2) Scholarship-producing high quality and community based research, 3) Community peacemaking- programs, which disrupt cycles of violence, explore root causes of conflict, and help build strong resilient communities. Building community nonviolent social action will be the theme of this Forum.
