Special Travel Seminar
Transition and Crisis: Human Rights, 
Economics and the Role of the Church in China

Summer 2004

Plowshares Institute, Hartford Seminary, and Leadership Greater Hartford are co-sponsoring this travel seminar to Hong Kong and the People’s Republic of China.  The seminar will examine the effects in China of the recent dramatic economic change in post-SARS Asia. We also will consider issues of human rights and the role of religion in China.  Participants will have opportunities to hear Chinese leaders, especially those in urban centers, share insights and experiences of working in a nation in dramatic transition.  The cost for the trip (visas, room, board, and airfare) is $3,800 if audited, and an additional $575 for three academic credits.  

Meeting Day, Time and Dates:
Monday, May 24 – Monday, June 7

Robert A. Evans
Executive Director of Plowshares Institute and Adjunct Faculty of Theology and Ethics, will lead the travel seminar.
