Join GCORR in a Vital Conversation on Thursday, March 17 at 9 p.m. ET with Dr. Lisa Faulkner as she explores “The Church’s role in addressing tribal conflict and moving divided communities towards reconciliation.”
Dr. Faulkner has led action research projects within areas of racism, sectarianism, and homophobia. These include examining the motivations for participating in hate crimes, the needs of victims, and state and community responses to such crimes. She has also facilitated workshops and international site visits with individuals from various religious backgrounds to consider the role of reconciliation in building a more cohesive and shared society. Underpinning Dr. Faulkner‘s approach has been a recognition of the tribal nature of community relations and the importance of identity, culture, and heritage in attempting to heal centuries old divisions and animosities. Currently she is employed in a conflict transformation initiative which supports former Loyalist combatants in the post-ceasefire era of Ireland, encouraging them to embrace new, positive leadership roles in their local communities.
Join us here. The video will begin at 9 p.m. ET and will be followed by a live conversation with Dr. Lisa Faulkner, where you can ask questions and engage in the discussion.
