The Pax Romana Journal is an interdisciplinary annual publication for literature reviews, research and opinion pieces on specific contemporary social issues. Key themes, include but are not limited to: Human rights; Democracy, good governance and global governance; Themes on the United Nations agenda; Faith, church reform, synodality, and lay participation; Youth participation and advocacy; Climate change and ecological justice; Intercultural/interreligious dialogue.
It is published jointly between ICMICA and IMCS.
Each of these themes is approached from the perspective of Catholic Social Teaching with the goal of promoting peace, justice and mercy, in service of the common good of the poor and the Earth.
IMCS and ICMICA are pleased to present the 2022 issue of the Pax Romana Journal, an intercultural, international, interdisciplinary, and intergenerational review.
In 2022 the special edition of the Journal was edited by Pax Romana Jurists’ Commission (PRJC). The theme
of the Journal, “Human Rights for Peace and Justice”, was chosen in light of the concurrent relevance and
more than a century long peace and justice experiences of global catholic tertiary students.
This year’s theme is Rethinking Democracy. The issue includes articles nine contributors coming from seven countries (Indonesia, Germany, Australia, Uruguay, Italy, Switzerland, and Brazil). The authors in this volume bring a range of experiences, expertise, and ideas. We hope that these diverse papers can contribute in some way to the type of dialogue and social friendship that is urgently needed today.
