ESW Brussels, 1997: Christian-Social Thought and Europe

Get the Proceedings
Christian social thought has had a consider­able influence on the design of the European nations. Both Protestants and Catholics have made great contributions to the social and eco­nomic structure of their respective nations over the last century. The developments leading to further European integration made Christians conscious that they also had to come in contact on a European level. From March 20- 22, 1997, persons within the Christian social tra­dition met in Brussels on a three-day confer­ence in the buildings of the European Parlia­ment. This meeting was not only historic be­cause of its international scale, but also because people from labour unions, employer’s organisations, universities, churches and po­litical parties met together.
