The aim of this conference is to discuss theoretical perspectives and practical methods suggested by theology and religious studies that can be used to enhance conventional approaches and suggest alternative responses to the problems and the role of youths in conflict transformation and peace building.
Can religions recover their roles as peace makers? This conference will investigate four main areas to this issue:
1. Enhancing theoretical frameworks from social, cultural, political, economical, religious and theological perspectives.
2. Evaluating the dynamics and resources of peace-building in the light of case studies from conflict zones including Korea Peninsula, Balkans, Middle East, Africa and South Asia.
3. Facilitating engagement between theory and practice in dealing with refugees and displaced persons by bringing academics and practitioners together.
4. Suggesting practical, multi-disciplinary approaches for politicians, policy makers, community leaders, NGOs, national and international organizations.
