DIACONIA AGAINST POVERTY AND EXCLUSION IN EUROPE

posted May 27, 2013, 4:54 AM by Antonio eurodiaconia   [ updated May 27, 2013, 4:54 AM ]

The collection of papers from the Third International Conference for the Research and Study of Diaconia has just been published. The conference which was hosted by the Diakoniewissenschaftliches Insitut of the University of Heidelberg was an important step in the development of ReDi.Here is the description of the collection:

'Poverty and exclusion are rising challenges in all European countries. Christian welfare organizations such as Diaconia have been committed to working against poverty and marginalization for many years. However, a change of the structures which cause poverty is often not accomplished. Poor people remain in dependent situations and do not really participate in society. What are the main challenges to diaconal institutions combating poverty and exclusion? Which innovations are necessary within Diaconia and civil society in order to meet future challenges?

With contributions from all over Europe, this volume tries to answer these questions by applying a multi-perspectival angle to the main challenges, by examining new concepts and by developing new perspectives for the future of Christian social practice.'
