The Centesimus Annus Foundation has launched a contest to promote Christian values in politics, society and economics. A 50,000 euro award will be given to the person who best explains how the Church's Social Doctrine
can be used to improve economic and social development.
The competition invites all researchers and scholars who published works on the Social Doctrine of the Church, after 1991.
The deadline is June15th. The judges will include the Archbishop of Munich, Cardinal Reinhard Marx. The Centesimus Annus is a Vatican foundation, that was formed in 1991, after John Paul II published his encyclical “Centesimus Annus.”
That encyclical deals precisely with how the social doctrine of the Church can be applied in economics and society at large.
