The Catholic Church, working with other religious actors, has played a prominent role in promoting human rights, sustainable development, good governance, and peace amidst conflicts in Africa. Cardinal John Onaiyekan, one of Africa's most prominent religious peacebuilders, will reflect on lessons learned from his decades of work for peace in Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa.

This event is cosponsored by the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, the Keough School of Global Affairs, and the Ansari Institute for Global Engagement with Religion.
