Among the most involved institutions in the world in the promotion of the dignity and rights of migrants and refugees one can certainly count the Society of Jesus. Very concretely, the Social Justice and Ecology Secretariat (SJES) of the General Curia, the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS,) the Migration Network, GIAN (Global Ignatian Advocacy Network) and the Institute of Studies on Migration of the Pontifical University of Comillas, Spain, have joined forces to publish a book entitled Migratory Flows at the Borders of our World.
The launch, originally planned for March in the Vatican, in conjunction with the Migrants and Refugees section of the Dicastery for Integral Human Development, had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will take place online, coordinated by the Comillas University, which is responsible for the publication of the book. This publication shows, once again, the attention that Jesuits pay to the most vulnerable among the vulnerable.
The presentation will take place in a participatory form, through a webinar, to which all are invited. It will take place on Thursday, 18 June, at 6 p.m., Madrid and Rome time. The speakers will be Fr. Arturo Sosa, SJ, Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Fr Fabio Baggio, from the Migrants and Refugees section of the Vatican, and Fr, Tom Smolich, SJ, International Director of the Jesuit Refugee Service.
