Conflicted? The World of War
This lecture takes a compelling look at the impact of war – the truth, the lies, and the reality on the ground – and the major events currently shaping our world. Drawing on over fifteen years of being at the frontline of many of the world’s major crises, Dr. Nutt explores the meaning of social justice and community in the context of our growing global economic and security inter-dependence.
