CWN Editor's Note: The compact, which will be unveiled in June 2022, will be “a shared program of actions for promoting the family throughout the world in light of the social doctrine of the Church,” according to an announcement by the Dicastery for Laity, Family, and Life.

As part of the process, centers for family studies at Catholic universities will gather “information and research carried out on the cultural and anthropological importance of the family, focusing particularly on family relationships, the social value of the family and good practices of family policies at the international level.”
