2017 Benjamin Eby Lecture

Peace and Conflict Studies Professor Reina Neufeldt is presenting the 2017 Benjamin Eby Lecture, an annual lecture that presents the research of a faculty member at Conrad Grebel University College.

Good intentions. Good ends. Failure. People usually assume peacebuilding is morally good because well-intentioned people are pursuing good ends.   Likewise, reconciliation. But, what happens when the moral values that drive peacebuilding become a problem?  

Reina Neufeldt explores how moral and ethical claims that are intrinsic to peacebuilding can contribute to failure and can be part of transformational engagement in her lecture titled, "When Good Intentions are not Enough: Confronting Ethical Challenges in Peacebuilding and Reconciliation." Join us on October 26th at 7:30pm in the Conrad Grebel Chapel.
