Description
Summary:This keynote address aims to encourage attendees at a conference on Christianity and international politics to consider three major challenges that face practitioners and theorists alike. The first is to recognize and deal forthrightly with the normative dimension of international political responsibilities. The second is to seek a big-picture understanding of our shrinking, diversifying world with all of its rapidly changing, intensifying complexities in domestic governance, non-government organizations, and international administrative and adjudicating bodies. The final challenge is to ask self-critically how Christians should be approaching the responsibilities they exercise in domestic and international affairs as well as in research, writing, and teaching in the field.
