“Professor Philpott brings an ambitious vision for building the CCHR into a leading center for impactful research to his new role,” said J. Nicholas Entrikin, vice president and associate provost for internationalization. “He is a highly accomplished scholar who will support and enhance the center’s position as a beacon for civil and human rights, guided by the tenets of Catholic social teaching.”
A member of the Notre Dame faculty since 2001, Philpott is a scholar of international relations, political philosophy and peace studies whose research concerns religion and reconciliation in politics. He is the author of numerous articles and books on these subjects including, most recently, “Just and Unjust Peace: An Ethic of Political Reconciliation,” which proposes concrete ethical guidelines to societies emerging from authoritarianism, civil war and genocide.
