FRONTLINE WITH FACULTY SERIES: The Role of Religiously-Based Nonprofits in US Social Policy

Bryan Hehir | Parker Gilbert Montgomery Professor of the Practice of Religion and Public Life, HKS
Thursday, April 18
4:15 – 5:15pm
Weil Town Hall, Belfer Building

The objective of the session will be to explore where such agencies “fit” in the social system, how they differ among themselves and how they conflict and produce specific policy challenges.

J. Bryan Hehir is the Parker Gilbert Montgomery Professor of the Practice of Religion and Public Life. He is also the Secretary for Health Care and Social Services in the Archdiocese of Boston. His research and writing focus on ethics and foreign policy and the role of religion in world politics and in American society. He served on the faculty of Georgetown University (1984 to 1992) and the Harvard Divinity School (1993 to 2001). His writings include: “The Moral Measurement of War: A Tradition of Continuity and Change; Military Intervention and National Sovereignty; Catholicism and Democracy;” and “Social Values and Public Policy: A Contribution from a Religious Tradition.”
