    Sedition and revolt in modern european political thought

    We wish to bring together international contributors once more in a discussion of the political thought brought about by various uprisings between the end of the Middle Ages and the modern era, whether it be reflections over a particular event, or more general considerations over the causes of sedition and protest movements, the means to prevent or suppress new episodes, and their adverse – or regenerative – effects. This analysis will focus on political writings composed for government use or for a wider audience – memoirs and reports, as well as treatises on the statecraft that proliferated throughout Europe in the modern era and saw wide acceptance. There is a tendency in the current literature to make use of historical examples that are distant in time and place, and a need to consider the possible repercussions of theoretical reflection from experience drawn from recent or contemporary revolts.

    Violence, Non-Violence and Religion

    The Third Conference on Christian-Muslim Relations

    Bethlehem University, with its tradition of building better relations between Christians and Muslims, according to its values as a Catholic LaSallian Palestinian University, is proposing a conference on Violence and Religion (9-11 February 2011) as a chance to discuss this difficult topic of the relationship between religion and violence. Although the topic may seem vast and complex, the multidisci-plinary approach allows for a better understanding of the topic and an informative exchange among scholars and interested people from all faiths.
