IRTI Conference 2024: Peace among the Nations
How are (geo)political violent conflicts, including their religious dimensions, to be understood theologically? This and other questions will be addressed at the forthcoming 15th international conference of the International Reformed Theological Institute (IRTI), at Duta Wacana Christian University in Yogyakarta.
About the programme
Throughout the ages, Christians have reflected on how they should relate to the magistrate or state, what their political responsibility might entail, and whether and under which conditions the use of military force is justified. Given the geopolitical nature of conflicts such as the Russian invasion in Ukraine and the Chinese claim on Taiwan, and given the many ongoing inter- and intrastate conflicts such as in Gaza or Nagorno-Karabach in which religion often plays an important role, these questions take on new urgency and ask for profound theological reflection.
