OVERVIEW

The core purpose of the 50th Anniversary of Pacem in Terris conference is to explore the thematic peace and justice issues that have been addressed by modern Catholic social thought, especially those within the encyclical such as human rights, political structures, ecumenism and environmentalism. One of the reasons for bringing in speakers from around the world is because of the international and interfaith approach to peacemaking and promotion of human rights that profoundly affected Catholic teaching and practice. In order to garner original and creative insights from the speakers and the papers, they are being asked to address the weaknesses or gaps that exist within the document and how the Church of today can move forward in the promotion of peace and justice in our pluralistic world.
