Rome associate

Diego Alonso-Lasheras S.J. teaches Moral Theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University since 2008. His two main fields of research are the ethics of globalization and religious freedom. On ethics of globalization, his current research focuses on justice, globalization and faith, favoring dialogue between non-religious justice discourse on globalization and the Catholic Social Tradition. On religious freedom, he focuses on the ways the Catholic understanding of religious freedom can help in building peace. In his research, he always pays attention to the history of Catholic moral theology as an important source for the renewal of the discipline.

Alonso-Lasheras was born in Madrid, Spain. He earned a B. A. in Law and B. A. in Economics and Business from ICADE, Universidad Pontificia Comillas; his S.T.L. from the Gregorian University; and his S.T.D. from the Weston Jesuit School of Theology (today the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry).
