Populorum Progressio by Pope Paul VI is widely regarded as the "magna carta of development" as it provided the basis for many of the Catholic Church's policies on integral human development. The Center for Social Concerns Catholic Social Tradition Conference, The Soul of Development: 50th Anniversary of Populorum Progressio, will address the thematic social justice issues in this seminal modern Catholic social thought document, especially those in the encyclical such as economic justice, international development, solidarity with the poor, peacebuilding and globalization, all of which gave rise to liberation theology and integral human development practices.
