Empathy, Morality and Development

What is empathy and why do we have it? Is it necessary for morality, or can it sometimes be more of a hindrance than a motivator when working in zones of conflict?

We will discuss these and other questions in the first episode of the PaX Podcast.

To get in depth with the topic, our hosts are going to explore different theories on compassion and talk to two professionals who have worked in zones of conflict: Canadian journalist Matthew McClure and Kerstin Karlström who works for the UNHCR in Lebanon.
