Il-kontribut ta’ Papa Benedittu għad-Duttrina Soċjali tal-Knisja

A lot is being written these days about the figure of Benedict XVI, a pope of great intelligence, formation and humility, who will certainly go down in history books as a great theologian. In this brief article, I wish to summarize, what, in my opinion, were Benedict’s greatest contributions to the Social Doctrine of the Church.

When going through the writings of the different Popes, we will often notice quotes from their predecessors and or even from their previous writings… Kompli aqra »

Rapport Annwali 2022

In a year which was sadly marked by the return of war on European soil and daily reports of deadly injustices and senseless violence, the need to denounce situations of violent injustice, whilst proposing creative pathways which lead to more just and reconciled communities, has never been so urgently felt.

In this context, as a Commission, we make ours the words of the Holy Father who, whilst in Malta, highlighted the need to shore up the foundations of life in society, namely honesty, justice, a sense of duty and transparency… Kompli aqra »

Żvilupp sostenibbli

Minkejja għarfien dejjem akbar dwar il-fatt li l-mudell ekonomiku tagħna m’huwiex sostenibbli, m’aħniex nersqu lejn mudelli ġodda ta’ kif nivvjaġġaw, nikkunsmaw u nibnu. L-inċentivi biex ninkuraġixxu b’mod ġentili lin-nies biex jadottaw stili ta’ ħajja aktar sostenibbli, waħedhom ma jidhrux li huma biżżejjed. Forsi wasal iż-żmien li nippenalizzaw ċerti għażliet, permezz per eżempju ta’ taxxi ambjentali li jirriflettu l-prezz reali tal-ħsara ambjentali?

Mal-professur Maria Attard, li tmexxi d-Dipartiment tal-Geografija u l-Istutut ta’ l-Iżvilupp Sostenibbli fl-Università ta’ Malta u Dr Marie Briguglio, lettura fl-Università ta’ Malta fil-qasam tal-Behavioural Economics and Environmental Economics, nitkellmu dwar il-bżonn urġenti li nadottaw mudell ekonomiku u soċjali iktar sostenibbli… Kompli aqra »

Minn mindu l-FIFA għażlet lill-Qatar biex jospita t-Tazza tad-Dinja tal-2022, dan ir-Renju tal-Golf spiċċa taħt skrutinju kritiku kostanti. Dik li kellha tkun ċelebrazzjoni ta’ talent, diversità u kompetizzjoni sportiva, qed tittrasforma ruħha f’kampjonat mittiefes minn stejjer ta’ sfruttament, transazzjonijiet mhux ċari, u preġudizzju. F’dan il-każ, l-eżerċizzju ta’ “sportswashing”, li bih l-isponsors korporattivi u n-nazzjonijiet ospitanti jfittxu li jtejbu r-reputazzjoni tagħhom billi jisfruttaw l-emozzjonijiet qawwija evokati mill-avvenimenti sportivi, ma jidhirx li sejjer kif mistenni… Kompli aqra »
