On April 24, Professor Andrea Bartoli, Dean, School of Diplomacy and International Relations at Seton Hall University in New Jersey, will be delivering a lecture at the University of Ottawa titled “Resolving Conflict through Responsibility.”
In the aftermath of World War II and the commission of international crimes, Conflict Resolution emerged as a multi-disciplinary field of study and practice. While the Government of Canada has contributed specific ideas and initiatives – notably Peacekeeping, Human Security and the Responsibility to Protect – the Canadian philosopher/theologian/economist Bernard Lonergan emphasized and advocated personal and social responsibility. The Global Action Against Mass Atrocity Crimes (GAAMAC) builds on this. Professor Bartoli will reflect on these developments and their implications, challenges and prospects.
GAAMAC is an inclusive State-led initiative that focuses on the prevention of genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and crimes against humanity and constitutes a global “Community of Commitment”.
The lecture is being presented by The Neuberger-Jesin Professorship in International Conflict Resolution and The Faculty of Law, Common Law Section. It will take place April 24, in Fauteux Hall FTX 570 at 4:30pm.
