Providence Magazine‘s annual Christianity & National Security (CNS) conference is held each year at the end of October at the Army and Navy Club in Washington, DC. The two-day event features academics, journalists, think tank fellows, veterans of the executive and legislative branches, and other experts on the theory and practice of international relations. CNS serves as a unique space for thoughtful Christians to come together and discuss the meaningful and consistent application of Christian ethics to foreign policy.

From St. Augustine in the 4th century to Reinhold Niebuhr in the 20th, Christians have long understood that laws of government, including the use of force, must be judged according to the law of God. As threats from China, Russia, and Iran proliferate, educating young people on the Christian tradition of Just War Theory as well as the necessity of American hard and soft power for global stability is more important than ever. The next conference will take place on Thursday, October 31st through Friday, November 1st, and is open to college students, professors, and DC area professionals.

Hotel rooms and meals will be provided free of charge for the duration of the conference for students and professors. In order to attend the conference, a resumé and brief statement of interest should be sent to Sarah Stewart at [email protected].

Past speakers have included influential thinkers on foreign policy like Walter Russell Mead, Matthew Kroenig, Eric Patterson, Elbridge Colby, and Rebeccah Heinrichs.
