The Role of Ethics, Education and Good Governance for Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice: Perspectives from Faith-Based Organizations

Coalition of Faith-Based Organizations:  Spirituality and Justice Initiative

September 15, 2020               7:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time

“The role of ethics, education and good governance in strategies to prevent crime and achieve justice are often not considered together. They build from promoting better individual decisions, to ways the educational process can support ethical decision-making, to building capacity and reducing corruption for inclusive and effective governance. This webinar will discuss and highlight the contributions of faith-based organizations in promoting ethics, education and governance in our efforts to prevent crime and achieve justice more equitably and consistently.”
