Brookline, Massachusetts, on the campus of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology
- "The purpose of this international conference is to sensitize the Christian churches of their responsibility to work and to contribute their own resources in assisting humanity to develop a culture of peace and justice to overcome the roots of violence, oppression and despair that has led to explosions of cruelty and terror in many parts of the world. The scope of the conference will be achieved by exploring the root causes of violence in the modern world, as well as the challenges and the responsibility of the Christian churches, from an interdisciplinary and critical perspective, that includes contributions by social scientists, theologians, religious and community leaders."
- "Registration fees for the three day conference, including all meals, is $80 per person if registered before September 20, and $100 for registration between September 21 and the conference start of October 27. For more information, contact the Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Clapsis at the College. (617) 731-3500 or email: [ eclapsis -AT- hchc.edu ]." —www.hellenic.hchc.edu/pages/news/prviolence.asp
