Catholic Social Teaching takes a profound viewpoint on the nature of the human person, our relationship with God and how we are supposed to live together.  This is a very brief presentation of some of these key background themes and includes some brief quotations from relevant CST documents.  Ideal for the classroom.

CST has a long and complex history of thought and debate.  How can it be brought to bear on questions of migration today?  Anna Rowlands here gives a brief outline of five relevant principles.
