RPP Colloquium: Join Us!
The RPP Colloquium is a free public dinner event. On May 3, 2018, the final RPP Colloquium session of the year, titled Sustaining Peace: The Role of Ethics, Law, and Policy in Promoting a New International Security Paradigm, featured a conversation with Ben Ferencz, International Peace Advocate and Former Nüremberg Prosecutor and respondents J. Bryan Hehir (Harvard Kennedy School) and Gabriella Blum (Harvard Law School).
Rev. Karen Budney, MDiv '91 and Albert Budney, MBA '74's passion for religious knowledge inspired them to make a major gift to RPP. "At HDS, I was surrounded by people of many different denominations who shared their faith openly and respectfully. It prepared me to engage with differences in a peaceful, more understanding manner," said Rev. Budney.
