Vatican conference explores solidarity, fraternity in business
May 09, 2014
The Centesimus Annus – Pro Pontifice Foundation, established by St. John Paul II in 1993, is hosting a conference at the Vatican entitled “The good society and the future of jobs: can solidarity and fraternity be part of business decisions?”
The speakers, who include prelates, government officials, and business leaders, are examining how the concepts of solidarity and fraternity, discussed by recent popes, shed light on current economic problems. According to the conference program, “redistribution seems to have reached its limits,” and “‘corporate social responsibility’ is probably not a sufficient answer” to the problems of “new inequalities and social deterioration for many.”
The conference concludes on May 10 with an audience with Pope Francis.
