The Social Doctrine of the Church. An African Journey (2013)

The Social Doctrine of the Church. An African Journey (2013)

By publishing this volume, the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace (now Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development) intends to keep alive the memory of three seminars held in Africa: in Cotonou, Benin, in March 2012 for Wstern and Nothern African countries; in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, in September 2012 for Central and Eastern African countries; and in Whindhoek, Namibia, in December of the same year for countries of Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands. 

These meetings were part of the outcome of the Pan-African Conference for the presentation of the Encyclical Caritas in Veritate, which was held in Accra, Ghana, from 26 to 29 September 2010, and whose participants had called for a regional follow-up in order to deepen the teachings of this Encyclical in the context of the realities of Africa. 


The book is available in English and French only in our offices.
