International Jesuit Network for Development

The Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice, in association with the International Jesuit Network on Development (IJND), has published a collection of essays to mark the fortieth anniversary of Populorum Progressio, the papal encyclical on development and justice. This visionary encyclical, which highlighted many of the issues that we now see as central to development, is sadly still relevant in a world where millions of people in our world today live in misery.

The central themes in Populorum Progressio, have inspired experts in development to reflect on its enduring relevance. The Development of Peoples: Challenges for Today and Tomorrow looks at issues across today’s development spectrum, including poverty, debt, trade, peace and conflict, human rights, globalisation, HIV/AIDS, gender inequality, the environment, and migration.
