Sep. 21: Online Debate: Can War Ever Be Justified?

With what do we replace the war system? What are the moral, social, political, philosophical and pragmatic foundations of an alternative global security system – a system in which peace is pursued by peaceful means? War Abolition 201 explores these questions and more with the goal of engaging students in learning that leads to action. Learn more.

In November 2022, World BEYOND War will be holding a weekly discussion each of four weeks of The Crown of Light with the author Rivera Sun as part of a small group WBW book club limited to a group of 18 participants. She will send each participant a signed paperback or kindle. Learn more.

Sign up early for future book clubs and get the books early here.
