In Good Conscience: Human Rights in an Age of Terrorism, Violence, and Limited Resources

Sponsored by the Fordham Center on Religion and Culture and the Fordham Center for Ethics Education

Pervasive fears sparked by acts of terror, violent crime and resource scarcity test our values and raise critical questions about how enduring our support for human rights may be.

When does the right to live safely and securely trump our obligation to uphold basic human rights? Is our attitude toward extreme remedies such as capital punishment and torture rooted in principle or in pragmatism? What do we owe survivors of genocide and other tragedies? This forum focused on the challenge of upholding human rights, compassion and justice in an increasingly insecure world.
