Fossil Fuels and the Climate Emergency

29th October 2019

The fossil fuel industry is unequivocally driving us towards a global climate crisis and public health emergency.

 

How can corporations be held to account, and their business models made to be in line with the Paris Agreement? How can we get them to comply with the greenhouse gas targets? What are the approaches we can take to move away from Fossil Fuels? How can we ensure that people enjoy prosperous and healthy lives in the future, not the past?

How can we ensure that the tax system is fair, efficient, and transparent? What does the Christian tradition say about the Common Good, and what can be expected from individuals and businesses?

Aid and Development Post Brexit

20th February 2019

The UK is a development superpower, one of the most generous countries in the world. In its own right, as well as the third contributor (after Germany and France) to the EU’s aid budget. As for the EU, it channels more than half of the worlds ODA (Overseas Development Assistant) annually, something that constitutes a key political asset of the Union in its external relations.

 

How will Brexit impact UK aid and development? What does Brexit mean in terms of aid? Will the EU development policy change after Brexit? Will the global poor suffer as a result of Brexit?
