Tanenbaum Peacemakers the Focus of College Course

Since Tanenbaum published Peacemakers in Action: Profiles of Religion in Conflict Resolution in 2007, the Tanenbaum Peacemakers have been popping up in curricula around the country and around the world.  Dr. Pamela Couture, Jane and Geoffrey Martin Chair in Church and Community at Emmanuel College in Toronto, has taken the study of the Peacemakers to a new level, developing a course called “Religious Peacemaking” that uses the stories of the Peacemakers as course-long cases. The course culminates in a Peacebuilding Conference featuring Peacemakers Jose “Chencho” Alas and Rev. Canon Andrew White on January 18-19. It is heartening to see the Peacemakers connecting to the next generation of religiously-motivated leaders while carrying out their critical work.
