Diego Alonso-Lasheras

Holder of a BA/MA in Law (1992) and Business (1993), from ICADE, Madrid and Doctor in Theology (STD, 2007) from Weston Jesuit School of Theology.

“My two main fields of research are the intersection of ethics and economics and religious freedom. On ethics and economics, my current research focuses on how to help Christians
to do social discernment in their working life by drawing rules for discernment from the resources of the Catholic Social Tradition. On religious freedom, I focus on the ways the Catholic understanding of religious freedom can help in building peace. In my research I always pay attention to the history of Catholic moral theology as an important source for the renewal of the discipline.”

HIWAR – Building bridges with Islam (Madrid)

Project HIWAR was conceived on the grounds of a group of researchers from the Universidad Pontificia Comillas that had the committed dedication to converse, get closer to and build bridges with Islam. Making the most of the experience of inter-religious dialogue that the Society of Jesus has been developing from General Congregation 34, this group aims to deepen the experience involved in sharing those values that unite us with other religious denominations in general and in particular with Islam.
