Does Nonviolence Work and is it Effective? Dr. Swasti Bhattacharyya on Responding to Violence

PJSA Fundraising Chair, Dr. Swasti Bhattacharyya

This video interview was conducted at the 2012 Peace and Justice Studies Association conference at Tufts University in Boston, MA.

Dr. Bhattacharyya is Professor of Philosophy & Religion at Buena Vista University. Along with her work in the academy, she worked for 10 years as a Registered Nurse in both neurosurgery intensive care and labor and delivery. This experience gives her thinking on bioethics/medical ethics a direct and practical, as well as deeply philosophical basis. As a comparative religious applied ethicist, her work examines ethical issues (bioethics, environmental ethics, and nonviolence, peace and justice) from different religious perspectives (Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Jain, Jewish, Muslim).
