Lecture: "No Room at the Inn? Catholic Social Teaching and Homelessness"

Wednesday, February 23, 2022 - 4:00pm

Hesurgh Library, Carey Auditorium

About the Lecture

This lecture will examine key principles within Catholic Social Teaching and consider their application to Ireland's housing crisis. Both globally and locally, access to affordable and safe housing is becoming more difficult, raising serious questions about economics, social inclusion, and the common good. How might Catholic Social Teaching contribute to such a discussion? And what does the Irish context reveal about the challenges of accessing decent housing and safeguarding human dignity?
