Among those who must work in unity for peace are the leaders of the world religions.The Chair has an established program of a special annual lecture. This will now be supplemented by the development of a series of special dialogues. Over the coming years, the Chair will be sponsoring such dialogues to synthesize and harmonize the views of different groups on key issues of peace, social justice and respect for human diversity. These will be presented in ways commensurate with giving full consideration to spiritual as well as empirical aspects of both problems and solutions.
Concomitantly, the Chair will be researching and presenting the actual experiences of various individuals who have participated in and witnessed successful efforts in the promotion of group unity and the transformation of conflict into peace. Actual interviews with such individuals will be present on this site under the heading “Exchanges & Commentaries.”
