Catholic Social Teaching and the Global Future of Development

During spring 2015 Georgetown organized a global dialogue around the future of development as part of the Global Futures Initiative. A series of four lectures by World Bank Group leaders anchored a conversation that includes faculty, students, and development practitioners around the world. 

Given the centrality of development issues for the papacy of Pope Francis, the Berkley Center invited some 20 faculty and students at Jesuit colleges and universities around the world to participate in a structured exchange about Catholic social thought and its relevance for the global future of development. This page features their conversations relating to principles including human dignity, solidarity, subsidiarity, environmental responsibility, and the common good.
