War, human dignity and nation building: theological perspectives on Canada's role in Afghanistan
Canada's involvement in Afghanistan is the longest martial conflict in its history, precipitated by the 2001 9/11 attack in New York City. This volume is the first major attempt by the Centre for Public Theology to bring together theologians, philosophers, faith leaders, NGOs, politicians and other academics to dialogue about the impact of the Afghan "Mission.v These papers form much of the conversation of a conference held in May 2009 at the Centre for Public Theology. They offer reflections on the Manley Report, investigations on the issues at play in Canada's response, interaction with Canada's shift from "peace-keeping" to "war-fighting" and the new NATO mandate, thoughts on the role of Islamic nations and analysis of the role of the Abrahamic faith communities.
