Former Nuclear Sub Commander to Share How Faith-Based Diplomacy Counteracts Religious Extremism in World “Hot Spots”

Dr. Douglas Johnston, founder and president of the Washington D.C.-based Center for Religion and Diplomacy will speak on Tuesday, October 13th at the USU Taggart Student Center Auditorium about how his organization helped end a 21 year old civil war as well as how they brokered the release of 14 Taliban-held hostages. As they have worked to prevent violence and diffuse religious conflict in some of the most dangerous regions of the world, Johnston and his team use diplomatic “back-channels” and “faith-based diplomacy” to effect positive change where traditional diplomatic missions have failed. Johnston’s address is entitled “Faith-based Diplomacy as a Counter to Violent Extremism.” It begins at 4:30 pm.
