Operationalizing the Common Good Workshop

Tuesday, October 23, 2018 - 8:30am to 12:00pm

The half-day workshop is dedicated to the question of identifying indicators for the common good; how can we assess to what extent a common good orientation is being realized in a particular context such as a municipality or a region? It is an expression of a research collaboration with the University of Puebla (Mexico) and is co-organized by the Center for Social Concerns and a Working Group on Catholic Social Tradition and Human Development at the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. The workshop will introduce a general question, then explore one particular approach developed by Professor Matthias Nebel and his Research Institute on the Common Good (Instituto Promotor del Bien Común) at the University of Puebla. This “pentagram” approach works with five main pillars of the common good: agency, humanity, stability, governance, and justice. The question is: Which are promising and suitable indicators for each of these five dimensions? The workshop will explore this question by way of concrete case studies presented by colleagues from Notre Dame, the University of Puebla, and the University of Oxford. This will also shed light on the concept of the common good and an understanding of its operationalization.
