“Responding to Genocide: Challenges to Historic Religious Pacifism” is the topic of a brown bag lecture hosted by the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR) on Thursday, March 2, from noon to 1:30 p.m. The speaker, Mary Lord of the Friends Committee on National Legislation, discusses how the committee and other faith-based groups responded to genocidal conflict in places such as Kosovo, Rwanda, and East Timor. In addition, she speaks about a new conflict prevention project on which she is working that articulates practical policy alternatives to military force.

In addition to her work with the Friends Committee, Lord works among U.S. Quakers on the peace team movement. She previously was the deputy director of Physicians for Social Responsibility.

The talk is held in ICAR’s main conference room, A401, at 4260 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax.
