Center of Concern Projects

Ecology and Development

Through research and analysis, theological reflection, advocacy, creation of resources, and collaboration with national and international partners, the Ecology & Development Project contributes a Catholic Social Teaching and global common good perspective to the evolving dialogue on ecology and development, while promoting ecologically- and socially-just policy solutions.

Education for Justice

The Education for Justice Web Site was created to help teachers, social action directors, parish members, campus ministers, and others in leadership roles to meet the challenge of sharing Catholic Social Teaching and bring greater awareness to social justice issues. 

Global Women's Project

The Global Women's Project uses the lenses of gender, race and class to analyze the effects of political, economic and social policies on women-and men-and to advocate for changes that better bring about social justice. The Global Women's Project approaches questions of women's human rights and equity through a long tradition of research, theological reflection, advocacy, outreach, popular education and coalition building.

Rethinking Bretton Woods

The Rethinking Bretton Woods (RBW) was founded in 1995 to promote reforms of international financial institutions -- such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund -- and policies, with the purpose of democratizing economic policy-making, achieving human rights and sustainable development.
