Religion and Genocide: Using faith for good or evil

In our world today and throughout history, we are keenly aware that religion can be used for both good and evil. In most cases of genocide and ethnic cleansing, religion has played a significant role that requires exploration, if we wish to learn from our history and not repeat it.  This course will look at the Holocaust, the Rwandan & Bosnian conflicts, and our current events to draw out lessons. Under what conditions does religion become evil such that exclusion and dehumanisation lead to genocide? How can it be prevented? What are the markers of communities who faithfully resist evil?
