‘Ethics of War’ Event
Leading speakers on the subject of war in history will be taking part in an open event on the theme of ‘The Ethics of War’ as a distinctive Church of Ireland contribution to the commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.

The Revd Professor Nigel Biggar, Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology in the University of Oxford, will speak on the theme based on his recent book In Defence of War, to which Professor Keith Jeffery, Professor of British History in Queen’s University, Belfast, and author of Ireland and the Great War, will respond referring to his recent historical research. The event will be chaired by the historian Professor David Hayton who will open up debate and discussion to the audience.
