The Churches in International Affairs

Reports 2007-2009

By Commission of Churches on International Affairs

Ranging across the globe, this vital compendium of documents covers an astonishing array of engagements by Christian churches through the World Council of Churches (WCC) and its Commission of the Churches in International Affairs (CCIA), including: war and peace, regional and national conflicts, disarmament and nuclear weapons, violence against women, economic justice, climate justice, freedom of religion, religious intolerance, ethnic and indigenous people's struggles, and more. Reflecting the fundamental Christian responsibility to respond to political realities, the CCIA, since 1946, has been the chief instrument of the ecumenical movement's international voice and advocacy. In the years 2007-2009, an expanded CCIA not only addressed a host of emerging issues and situations, but it also undertook new initiatives in the Middle East.
