Justice as Hospitality
– being a neighbour to the oppressed and afflicted
The notion of ‘hospitality’ is a theme common to all the Abrahamic religious traditions. It offers a better way of understanding space and its ownership than the secularist idea of a ‘neutral’ space which belongs to no-one and therefore has to be fought over or defended. The many biblical images of hospitality, and the implications for contemporary Justice and Peace issues, such as asylum-seekers, refugees, immigrants, poverty and debt, are very clear. We will look at how we can deepen our understanding of hospitality so as to make our work for justice more effective.
