Forum on the Paris Attacks: European Perspectives


Location: McKenna Hall Auditorium

The Center for Ethics and Culture invites the Notre Dame community to a special forum on the recent terrorist attacks in France, featuring three Paris-based scholars of European political thought:

Rev. Bernard Bourdin, O.P.
Director of Doctoral Studies and Research
Faculty of Social Sciences and Economics
Catholic University of Paris (ICP)

Giulio De Ligio
Associate Researcher, School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences (EHESS)

Guillaume de Thieulloy

The panelists, who are visiting Notre Dame to attend the Center’s upcoming fall conference, will offer brief opening remarks, followed by an opportunity for general questions and discussion. The panel seeks to contribute to the diverse campus-wide conversation regarding the events in Paris and their immediate aftermath, as well as the broader religious, political, and governmental challenges currently facing European and Western nations.
