Reflection Questions
  • Is war a part of the human condition? What evidence do you see in your reading for war as a pervasive part of the context for international development in our era?


  • In what ways could “internal war” such as coups and dictatorships be considered deliberate policy? In what ways is such policy influenced by outside social, religious, political and economic forces?


  • What responsibility or role does the cross-cultural religious worker have in times of internal conflict and oppression?
