    With the crisis in Europe, it's understandable that this week's G20 meeting has focused on international financing. But it gave less attention to the needs of the world's most vulnerable, who could benefit from greater food security that comes with better regulation of markets.

    If every economic decision has a moral consequence then the voice of the most marginalised should be amplified in economic discussions. CHOGM provides an opportunity to devise new solutions based on justice and compassion.

    Tomorrow, the world will welcome a new nation. After four decades of civil war and six tense months of transition, the Republic of South Sudan will assert its independence. This is an occasion for celebration, but also of new challenges for the international aid community.

    When 'sorry' is not enough

    • Mark Green
    • 25 May 2011

    The US Catholic Bishops' pastoral letter 'Economic Justice for All' says the extent of the suffering of the poor 'is a measure of how far we are from being a true community'. It is difficult to imagine how justice can be done for the Stolen Generations without compensation, redress and reparation.

    As airstrikes are launched against Libya, controversy grows around Australia's detention centres, and NSW prepares for its election, Japan will inevitably slip off our news radar. The rebuilding work of grassroots agencies will continue for years to come.

    Sudan's fate may appear sealed, and with tensions erupting in neighbouring Egypt it is easy to turn our gaze away. But with poverty and prosperity hanging precariously in the balance, there could not be a worse time to forget Sudan.

    Sudan's referendum on 9 January could bring much-needed change to a region plagued by instability. But it is just as likely to lead to violent turmoil that has the potential to reach far beyond the country's borders and involve many African nations in a bloody conflict. The world must prepare.

    Aid argument not 'anti-Catholic'

    • Gary Johns
    • 15 October 2010

    My article is not against the 'ethical and values-based mission of the Catholic Church'. Unfortunately, there is not and never will be aid enough for all. Also, unfortunately, some aid will be misspent, and some will be spent on projects that do no good.

    Associate Professor of Public Policy at Australian Catholic University, Gary Johns, has challenged the Government's growing support of African nations. In so doing, Johns blatantly dismisses the fundamental principles of solidarity, human dignity, common good and option for the poor.

    Julia Gillard said 'people like my own parents who have worked hard all their lives can't abide the idea that others might get an inside track to special privileges'.

    In East Timor, I was able to see close up the work of Caritas in war torn conditions. There could be no reconciliation without justice. Caritas worked tirelessly to proclaim the message.

    Aceh model suggests long-term hope for Burma

    • Margaret Rice
    • 28 May 2008

    Aid agencies are working hard, but some fear that once the emergency phase is over, access will again be denied. This would have unspeakable consequences for the people of Burma, who need long-term help to recover from Cyclone Nargis.
