War Abolition 201 (6-week Online course)

October 10, 2022 - November 20, 2022


With what do we replace the war system (aka the military-industrial-corporate-governmental complex)? What truly makes us secure? What are the moral, social, political, philosophical and pragmatic foundations of an alternative global security system – a system in which peace is pursued by peaceful means? What actions and strategies might we pursue in building this system? War Abolition 201 explores these questions and more with the goal of engaging students in learning that leads to action.

War Abolition 201 is a six week-online course providing participants an opportunity to learn from, dialogue with, and strategize for change with World BEYOND War experts, peer activists, and changemakers from around the world.

Each week of the online course will feature a guest facilitator from World BEYOND War or our partners. These facilitators will help you to explore weekly topics supported by an online chat room where you are encouraged to dialogue with peers and facilitators. The interactions are not live or scheduled. You take part whenever works for you.
