To commemorate the centenary of the passing of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the Cambridge University Bahá’í Society has arranged online talks by eight international speakers. Each speaker will focus on one theme based on the teachings and life of this unique individual and its relevance to our world today. This is the first talk in the series.

A Culture of Peace: ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s Integrative Vision

Circumstances that shaped nineteenth-century peace movements and the catastrophic impact of the First World War were unfolding when ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was actively engaged in promoting a clear understanding of the Bahá’í perspective on peace. Far more than simply focusing His discourse on the means to end wars, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá offered the holistic, all-inclusive vision for global peace—the oneness of humanity. His example has continuing relevance for the state of the world and the discourse on peace in the twenty-first century.

Professor Hoda Mahmoudi has held the Bahá’í Chair for World Peace at the University of Maryland, College Park since 2012. She studies systemic racism and root causes of prejudice, equality of women as a prerequisite to peace, human nature, global governance, and globalisation and the environment. Professor Mahmoudi collaborates with a wide range of scholars, researchers, and practitioners to advance interdisciplinary analysis and open discourse on global peace.
