In order for people from different cultures, religions and nations to live together in peaceful coexistence, it is important to establish a set of common, basic values. These unifying values are becoming particularly important in today’s globalised world.
But, is it possible to establish a shared ethical framework for all religious traditions? This module aims to answer that question through analysis of the Global Ethic and the basis of common ethical principles.
Participants will learn to place global ethics into the context of dialogue, resulting in increased efficiency in peacebuilding and greater cooperation between religions. The course will also explore the role of identities in a globalized world, the formation of prejudices and stereotypes, diversity and exclusion technologies and dialogue as a tool for recognition.
