Scoping study report: Exploring potential collaboration regarding local and global justice issues

The final report of the scoping study on exploring potential collaboration regarding local and global justice issues is now available.  The study was commissioned by the Bishops’ Appeal and the Council for Mission, following a resolution of the 2018 General Synod:

That General Synod supports the request of the Church of Ireland Bishops’ Appeal and the Church of Ireland Council for Mission to provide the resources needed to carry out a scoping study into the potential for greater collaboration

(i) between existing Church of Ireland committees and (ii) between the Church of Ireland and groups associated with it.

The research should explore further areas for collaboration for linking local and global justice issues such as (but not limited to) hunger, displacement, homelessness, poverty, wealth inequality, unfair tax and trade, climate change and gender–based violence.
