2007 Forum

First Annual Barbara L. and Norman C. Tanner Center for Nonviolent Human Rights Advocacy Forum

VALUES & VIOLENCE:
INTANGIBLE ASPECTS OF TERRORISM
March 1-2, 2007

The 2007 conference, featuring leading political, legal, and economic theorists of our time, was the first in an ongoing, multi-disciplinary series of lectures and forums held at the University of Utah focusing on human rights, nonviolent solutions to world issues, and universal values. In addition to invited guest speakers, this conference was organized and includes presentations from a diverse cross-section of the university's colleges and departments, including: the departments of anthropology, economics, geography, political science, psychology, and sociology from the College of Social & Behavioral Science; the S.J. Quinney College of Law; and the departments of history, philosophy, and communication. Issues and approaches were framed through an 18 month-long series of working sessions and seminars.

We are delighted to announce that an edited volume in the Studies of Global Justice series has resulted from this conference. Click here to view the cover and here for the table of contents.
