The book collects contributions presented and discussed during International Conferences and Consultations organized by the “Centesimus Annus – Pro Pontifice” Foundation (CAPPF) in the two-year period 2015 – 2016. In particular, articles here reported derive from two International Conferences held in the Vatican (“Rethinking Key Features of Economic and Social Life”, 25-27 May 2015, and “Business initiative in the fight against poverty. The Refugee Emergency, our Challenge”, 12-14 May 2016) and an International Consultation held in Malta (“A Dialogue on Finance and the Common Good”, 29-30 January 2016). Summary reports and fi nal proposals of the meetings are also included in the volume. Specifically, three dramatic issues, here envisaged as true global threats, are considered. First the refugee emergency, currently one of the most compelling humanitarian challenges confronting governments around the world. Then the challenges of non-inclusive growth and, more generally, the difficulties faced to achieve true human development and, finally, the ethical issues involved in designing and implementing effective financial reforms. The common thread running through all the contributions is that the future of human beings is today in jeopardy as a result of a number of interlinked and highly dependent phenomena such as excessive consumption in rich countries, inequality between and within countries, extreme poverty, migration, violence, environmental degradation. What we need today is a resolute determination to change behavior at all levels. Politicians, leaders and single citizens in their daily action have all to be far more sensitive than they are today to the common well-being. They should seriously start taking care of both the others and the environment. This requires a difficult and challenging cultural change, but it is necessary if we are willing to effectively face the present global emergencies. The book includes an Introduction by Giovanni Marseguerra (CAPPF Scientifi c Committee Coordinator) and Anna Maria Tarantola (CAPPF Board member and Delegate for the Scientific Committee).
