PAX 110 Introduction to Peace and Justice Studies 4cr

After an introduction to the causes of conflict and conditions that have led to peace in human history, the study will move on to the nature of modern war and global efforts to reduce conflict in the nuclear age. Aspects to be explored include a survey of the diminishing Cold War and its nuclear armaments, the rise of regional conflicts, the changing nature of violence, and institutions such as the United Nations and their roles in our increasingly interdependent world. Spiritual and political foundations of the peace and justice studies field will also be surveyed.
