Traveling Peace Academy

The URI Traveling Peace Academy (TPA) brings skills training and effectiveness to the new field of interfaith peace building. 

We have developed a process focused on building relationships and nourishing our personal creative abilities, even in surroundings of protracted violent or non-violent conflict.  This section of the URI Web site will present teachings, learning, and URI training developments.  It’s called “Traveling Peace Academy” because we are a global community not located in one country, city or building. We develop interfaith, cross-cultural training sessions that are designed appropriately for local situations.

Our unique training methodologies are informed by the Preamble, Purpose and Principles of URI and the practices of Moral Imagination developed by renowned peace studies scholar Prof. John Paul Lederach of the University of Notre Dame and Eastern Mennonite University.

The program is developing in several regions of the world; 2010 training sessions will be taking place in the Philippines, Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka.

TPA principles, effective practices, and resources will be shared in this TPA homepage as links, written articles and videos.  Consultations in preparation for actual training sessions will be scheduled as funding grows for the program.

Gender Equity in Islam

\When dealing with the Islamic perspective of any topic, there should be a clear distinction between the normative teachings of Islam and the diverse cultural practices among Muslims, which may or may not be consistent with them. The focus of this paper is the normative teachings of Islam as the criteria to judge Muslim practices and evaluate their compliance with Islam. In identifying what is \"Islamic,\" it is necessary to make a distinction between the primary sources of Islam \(the Qur\'an and the Sunnah\) and legal opinions of scholars on specific issues, which may vary and be influenced by their times, circumstances, and cultures. Such opinions and verdicts do not enjoy the infallibility accorded to the primary and revelatory sources.\ Read more...
