Centro di Ricerca "Markets, Culture & Ethics"

Mce

The Markets, Culture and Ethics Research Centre (MCE) of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome, Italy was founded in 2009 to study the ethical dimensions (social and individual) of economic and social life in a systematic and scientific way, in the light of reason and the Catholic faith.

Its purpose is to foster dialogue between faith and contemporary culture for the promotion of a positive transformation of society and global development.

MCE Research Centre’s activities focus on deepening and disseminating Catholic perspectives, through research and academic events, on the relation between ethics, culture and the economy and on the role and conduct of business in society. 

MCE does not align with any particular school of economic thought and is open to all traditions willing to dialogue with Christian anthropology and perspective. At the same time, MCE has an ecumenical and interreligious approach since social problems can only be resolved by a joint effort and in dialogue with contemporary culture regarding the meaning of a more humane economy.

Management for Ecclesiastics. Pastoral Instruction for the Church’s Resources. MCE Research Centre’s new course is designed for those students who will be responsible for managing the Church’s goods, which—as canon law and Pope Francis himself attest—must be administered with the diligence of a good householder (cfr. canon 1284). The course, taught by prof. Jesús Miñambres (Dean of the Canon Law Faculty at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross) and Dr. Angelo Paletta, aims to analyze the organizational functioning and management of parishes, dioceses, and the curia, and to examine the principal juridical, economic, and financial aspects.

MCE with the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture and the Catholic Research Economists Discussion Organization are organizing a Seminar about Economics and Catholic Social Thought. The Course will be from 22 to 27 of May
