The Judeo-Christian Legacy and/in International Relations


International Relations as a field of study seeks to understand how the people of the world interact so as to prevent or decrease conflict, yet this discipline arises out of a particular socio-cultural context imbued in the Judeo-Christian tradition. As such, this panel explores how these roots affect our ability to understand “Others” and our relations to them and offers lessons from alternate worldviews.


This event is aimed at professionals from International Relations, members of the International Studies Student Organization, Departments of International Studies and Communication, students from Flacso Ecuador, officials of the Foreign Ministry of Ecuador and embassies, as well as all interested in social studies.
