Grappling with the Global Ethic

Hosted at the University of Chicago Divinity School, Grappling with the Global Ethic: Multi-Religious Perspectives on Global Issues Conference was a two-day conference together leading scholars of several faith traditions. Each presenter explored a contemporary issue of social justice that is found in the context of his or her own religious community, and brought to bear the unique ethical resources of that tradition in engaging the issue, as well as the moral directives of the signature document of the Parliament of the World’s Religions, “Towards a Global Ethic: An Initial Declaration,” also known as the Global Ethic.
