Gay Teachers In Catholic Schools: A Conflict Of Human Rights, Ish Ruiz 2017 Graduate Theological Union

Gay Teachers In Catholic Schools: A Conflict Of Human Rights, Ish Ruiz

The Social Practice of Human Rights: Charting the Frontiers of Research and Advocacy

What happens when a person’s exercise of a human right conflicts with another’s enjoyment of a human right? Such is the case when a gay teacher in a Catholic school is fired as the school exercises its right to religious freedom in order to ensure its teachers live lives consistent with Church teaching.

The Dignity Of The Human Person: Catholic And Islamic Approaches To Human Rights, Matthew Bagot 2017 Spring Hill College

The Dignity Of The Human Person: Catholic And Islamic Approaches To Human Rights, Matthew Bagot

Human Development, Human Rights, And The 50th Anniversary Of Populorum Progressio, Ellen Maccarone 2017 Gonzaga University

Human Development, Human Rights, And The 50th Anniversary Of Populorum Progressio, Ellen Maccarone

The Social Practice of Human Rights: Charting the Frontiers of Research and Advocacy

At the 50th anniversary of the encyclical Populorum Progressio, we have a critical opportunity to bring Paul VI’s insights to the social practice of human rights. The development of peoples discussed by the encyclical isolates areas of significant concern to the Church and humanity more broadly. This, however, is not to say that there are not other issues overlooked in Populorum Progressio that also need to be addressed.

In this paper I argue that the understanding of human development found in Populorum Progressio serves as an important yet sometimes overlooked foundation in Catholic social teaching for the advancement ...
