Multifaith Integral Human Development Colloquium Meeting


Location: 4148 Jenkins Nanovic Halls

Main Building 3

The Multifaith Integral Human Development Colloquium will meet Friday afternoon in the Ansari Institute lounge, 4148 Jenkins Nanovic Halls. All are welcome. 

The colloquium aims to explore how various religious and spiritual traditions would approach the concepts and values of integral human development (IHD). Though IHD originated in Catholic social teaching, its framing is universal and its proponents assert that it can be applied to any context. 

In an effort to explore these possibilities, the colloquium will bring in special guests who do not come from a Catholic worldview to discuss how their belief systems inform humanitarian, peacebuilding, and development theory and practice. 

The goal of the colloquium is for participants to draw connections and expand IHD beyond its Catholic roots to become a truly global framework.
