This week-long summer school, is a study of the three regions of common life that Catholic social teaching addresses: civil society, political society and economic society.
At its core, Catholic Social Teaching holds that the human person is the end and purpose of every social organization. Civil society thus centres on the dignity of the human person and the family. Political society refers specifically to the state and the government of a society, which exist to serve civil society. Finally, economic society refers to organization of human economic life. Course costs €320 and is limited to 15 persons
