2013 Annual Conference:
Security, Surveillance and Christian Ethics
6-8 September 2013, University of Cambridge, Westcott House
Security and surveillance are key dimensions of the modern world. Global threats of terrorism have led to dramatic changes in the politics of national and international security. Multiple kinds of surveillance track our spending habits and web browsing. This conference asks what difference Christian faith makes to approaches to questions of security and surveillance. To what extent do traditional categories within Christian ethics disturb these new developments? How should Christian theology think about privacy? What kind of security constitutes a common good? What might theological ethics say today about fear, risk and the purpose of law? Is the classic just war tradition exhausted?
Nigel Biggar, Christ Church, University of Oxford; Eric Gregory, Princeton University; David Lyon, Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada; Esther Reed, University of Exeter; Eric Stoddard, University of St Andrews
